Welcome Back to Panyaden

DSCF2952 Morning assembly, Day 1 of new school year at Panyaden School Chiang Mai
Head Teacher Kru Dokmai and School Director Kru Neil welcomed new students back to school in this morning’s assembly. They asked old students how they can make their new friends feel welcome. ‘Ask them their name,’ suggested one Prathom 2 (P2) student. ‘Show them around the school’ proposed another from P5. ‘Do exercise with them!’ piped up one 6-year old girl from P1.

New teachers then introduced themselves, followed by some guidelines about where to play and keeping safe on our new climbing frame.

“We are very excited to see you all again and we are looking forward to a great year of learning ahead,” said Kru Neil.

Making Our Own Krathongs

Krathongs made by Panyaden School students for Loy Krathong

“Loy Krathong is here and everyone’s full of cheer” (Loy Krathong song). Part of the festive fun today was making our own krathongs at Panyaden School and  floating them in the swimming pool before we took them home. We also helped our teachers light some Chinese lanterns and watched them fly off into the sky.

It is easy to buy krathongs everywhere during the festival but nothing beats making your own with your friends or family and seeing your handiwork stay upright, floating along happily on the water.

To make a krathong, we first cut slices of banana stem to make the lotus-shaped base. Then we folded and pinned banana leaves around it. Finally we decorated it with pretty flowers, incense sticks and candles. Voilà our very own krathong!

Term 2

We are happy to see our friends and teachers again after our one-month break. Our second term began today with a warm welcome from everyone and a Halloween party complete with big wizard hats that we made ourselves. What fun! A big hello to the new students and we look forward to getting to know them better in the coming days.
