floating her Krathong
The Loy Krathong festival was celebrated in traditional
Thai style by the students and teachers at St. Andrews International
School, Rayong on Wednesday 31st October. It was lovely to see so many
students, parents and teachers wearing Thai costumes and joining in the
festivities with enthusiasm.
The day started with the whole school making their own
krathongs from natural materials. The teachers greatly appreciated the
expertise and advice provided by parents and the Thai staff at school. The
end results were just beautiful and the judges had a difficult job
choosing the best one from each key stage.

After finishing their krathongs everyone paraded to the
hard-court to show off all their hard work and participate in the Loy
Krathong assembly. A variety of musical items, dances and traditional
games performed by the Year 7, 8 and 9 students had everyone thoroughly
entertained. This was followed by a Muay Thai boxing display, which was
definitely a crowd pleaser.
When the assembly had finished, the students and staff
proceeded to the front of the school to float their krathongs and make a
wish for the New Year. A big thank you to everyone at St. Andrews
International School for making our Loy Krathong festival so successful.
