Students celebrated Loy Krathong at Garden International School (GIS) with an array of cultural activities.

The school’s Thai department organised an afternoon show on November 6 to mark one of Thailand’s most popular festivals.

Students from Primary and Secondary performed traditional Thai dances, gave a display of Muay Thai boxing and made their own krathong using biodegradable materials. Parents were invited to come along and watch the show.

Indorama was the gold sponsor and Blue Sky Developer Company Ltd., was the silver sponsor for the school’s Loy Krathong event. GIS is based in Ban Chang, near Pattaya.
