GIIS Bangkok campus celebrated Songkran on April 18, Thursday 2019. Songkran, the festival of water, is a time of transformation, change, and renewal. It is also a time to celebrate the passing of the previous year and to embrace the incarnation of the new one. This year, all the school staff, facilitators and students gathered on April 18th to commemorate this special day at the campus, highlighting Thai culture in its many forms and in welcoming another year together. The customary practice of the Songkran Festival is the cleaning of Buddha images, the pouring of water by those younger onto the hands of elders, seeking their blessing for the upcoming year. Children of all grades had attended the water ceremony for the Buddha image and for the teachers.
