Christmas Market and Celebration
On December 18th, 2019, RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok invited all friends of the school to its Christmas market and celebration – traditionally a very popular event. Once again many guests enjoyed the festive atmosphere.
Parents organized a Christmas market, which, alongside crafts, was a place to sample international delicacies, such as homemade cookies, and take part in different festive activities. Also, Santa Claus made an appearance and our young guests were happy.
The school was very glad to count the Ambassador of Switzerland H. E. Helene Budliger Artieda and the Ambassador of Germany H. E. Georg Schmidt to its guests at this celebration. It was very nice to see that numerous alumni, such as Niti Meyer, who is the son of the founder of the school, joined this marvelous event as well.
The official event began at 2pm with Christmas workshops organized by students with many activities, food and crafts, both in front of and inside the various classrooms.
Afterwards, guests were greeted on the sports field by Simon Dörig, the Principal of RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok. It was a fitting occasion to bid farewell to all students leaving RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok at the end of the year. Later, everyone enjoyed the fabulous Christmas performances presented by the students, Kindergarteners, Lernzwerge and school band. Thian Kaewmongkhol and Arch Yiamwanichnan from Grade 6 moderated the festive program. Later visitors were entertained with live music and dance performances by the students and parents and a Christmas Raffle. RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok was able to present this wonderful event with the help and support of many parents of our students and other members of our school community. Thank you very much!
We wish the entire school community a relaxing holiday, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the year 2020!
