Panyaden Wai Kru Day 2017 ceremony - student presents paan to head teacher

Panyaden Honours Teachers

Wai Kru Day Ceremony

We our teachers! Panyaden parents and students contributed flowers, which the latter used to make a ‘paan’ (flower cones made from banana leaves) each to present to their teachers during the Wai Kru Day (Respect for Teachers Day) ceremony, a meaningful way of formally saying thank you to our teachers and to honour them for their hard work and guidance.

Traditionally, ‘dok makua’ (eggplant flower), ‘dok khem’ (ixora) and ‘yapraek’ (Bermuda grass) are the flowers used for the ‘paan’. See photos of our students making the floral arrangements the day before the ceremony here on our blog.
