RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok celebrated Loy Krathong festival
On Friday, 30 October 2020 RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok celebrated Loy Krathong, one of the most important and beautiful festivals of Thailand. It is an event when the people of Thailand pay respect to the goddess of water by floating Krathongs on any and all waterways around the kingdom. The sight of thousands of Krathongs (floating banana leaf vessels) is a really magical sight, and there are many places in Bangkok and all over Thailand where you can get involved with the festivities.
All students joined the activities in mixed age groups and practiced how to make and decorate the Krathong. At noon all students proudly presented their Krathongs in the inner school yard. A big thank you to our Thai Language and Culture Department for organising the making of the Krathongs and to everyone who contributed.
