Songkran is a tradition that has been passed down in Thailand for a long time and it indicates the welcoming of the new year in Thailand.
The Thai Department at Wells On Nut Campus organized a Songkran Festival at school this year to commemorate Thai culture. Because of the Covid-19 situation, we did not host typical Songkran activities such as pouring water onto the image of the Buddha, pouring water over elder’s hands and asking for blessings, or splashing water.
Instead, the Thai Department organized some more appropriate activities and invited all teachers and students to wear Thai clothes or colorful Songkran shirts, create colorful bulletin boards, play Thai games and various classroom activities.
This created a bright and warm atmosphere in the school. The teachers and students had fun engaging in the activities which reflect Thailand’s identity and culture.
On behalf of Wells International School, the Thai Department wishes everyone in the school community a happy and safe Songkran this year!
