Loy Kratong 2022, 8th November

What is the meaning of Loy Krathong?

     The word loy in Thai means 'to float' and krathong translates to 'basket or boat', so the meaning of Loy Krathong is ‘float a basket'. A krathong is a small lotus-shaped boat traditionally made from banana leaves and decorated with flowers. In the center of the Krathong, there are traditionally 3 sticks of incense and a lit candle, and other things like hair and coins. As its name implies, on the evening of the festival, Thai people gather around rivers, lakes, and canals to release lotus-shaped baskets. See more information about Krathong.

      Students and teachers dressed up in Thai traditional clothes for Loy Kratong's celebration. Students made Kratong and brought them downstairs to reenact floating the Kratong in the river, and everybody danced while parading around the school ground. It was a fun and exciting experience to the students and the teachers too.
