Father’s Day is celebrated on December 5th which is the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the monarch of Thailand. He was born in 1927 and died on October 13th, 2016.
Wells International School – On Nut held a special ceremony in honor of His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to remember his birthday, Father’s Day and National Day in Thailand. On December 1st, our campus held a ceremony to celebrate fathers and let students show love for their fathers and father figures. Our American Sign Language (ASL) Club and High School choir performed a song called ลมหนาว or ‘Love in spring’, which has a deep meaning made by King Rama 9. Then Mr.Brian Salter Townsend gave a meaningful speech about ‘Father’s Day’, followed by his sons, Patrick (Class of 2024) and Sean (Class of 2029) also give a heartfelt speech to their father.
Additionally, we had another adorable performance to ‘I Love My Daddy’ from the primary students in Grade 2. Lastly, a video presentation about Father’s Day was presented by some of the High School students. It was a beautiful ceremony to celebrate this important figure, as well as other father figures, in everyone’s life. Happy Father’s Day to all!
