Parents and children from the International School Chonburi celebrated a traditional Loy Krathong. The children, dressed in a variety of colourful Thai costumes, danced the Ramwong around the bike track. That provided lots of photo opportunities for parents.

Back in the classrooms, each child made a krathong with help from parents and staff. The best part was floating them in paddling pools out in the garden and getting in the odd splash here and there.

It has been a busy time at ISC. The children, with lots of support from their parents, held a bake sale to raise money for children affected by the floods. Recently, Miss Lily took a group of children to the Rangsit Home for Babies. The children and staff at this orphanage have been living in Pattaya since their home in Bangkok is under water. They need money to replace destroyed items like their washing machine so ISC children happily donated 11,000 baht.
