Rose Marie Academy celebrates Songkran festival every year to introduce students to this important part of Thai culture. Students learn the importance of Songkran as Thai traditional new year. They perform water-pouring ceremony to show respect and gratitude to elders and to ask for blessings.
This year, our theme was “A Weave in Time” with emphasis on the beauty of fabrics, a unique aspect of Thai life. All the performances presented came from the collaborative work of the students. They researched, created choreography, and diligently practiced to demonstrate their ability under the guidance of the Thai language teacher, the music teacher, and other organizing committee members.
The event proved to be successful as seen from the smiles, the happiness, and the enjoyment of every participant.
