Students from Garden International School (GIS) had a wet and wonderful Songkran – with help from some special guests.
Children from the Camillian Centre in Ban Chang, which cares for people with HIV, made their annual visit to GIS. Students collected bags-full of gifts to hand over to the children and held special parties in their form rooms to make them welcome. Money was also donated by GIS students to help pay for new school uniforms for the Camillian children, raising more than 50,000 baht.
GIS students demonstrate the meaning of Songkran.
Everyone then joined in either Songkran activities or a special assembly where the tradition of Songkran was explained.
GIS is based in Ban Chang, near Pattaya. For more, visit www.gardenrayong.com.
Students pour water over teachers’ hands as a mark of respect.
GIS Principal Dr Stuart Tasker presents a donation to the Camillian Centre.
Primary students also joined in with their own activities.
Happy New Year! GIS teachers have fun with the students.
