At the beginning of every school year in Thailand, every student in Thailand participates in Wai Kru Day (Teacher Appreciation Day) to promote the respectable Thai tradition of giving thanks and appreciation for the kindness of teachers. On this occasion, they thank their teachers for giving them knowledge and wisdom, and helping them to develop as students.
Wells International School On Nut Campus organized a Teacher’s Day ceremony on January 16, 2020. At the beginning of the ceremony, several student representatives gave speeches. There was also a lively performance from Grade 12 students and the giving of small tokens of appreciation to all of our teachers and staff from the students.
Finally, Mr. David, one of our teacher representatives, gave an inspiring speech about the impact and lessons learned from teachers throughout his life, including his parents. This was a good opportunity for everyone to reflect on the significance and influence that all kinds of teachers have in one’s life.
Not only do teachers teach and give knowledge, but they also provide support, opportunities and inspiration for students to improve and become better versions of themselves. Thank you to all of our teachers for inspiring and teaching our students to their fullest potential, each and every day.
