Rose Marie Academy organizes a Songkran celebration every year for students, parents, and staff to join in celebrating a most important part of Thai culture. This year the theme was the importance of water in the Thai way of life. Before the event, students researched and wrote about it. Their work was displayed on boards for parents and visitors to appreciate. The event included the important part of this traditional Thai New Year when the students expressed their gratitude to teachers and parents through the impressive water-pouring ceremony. The school also provided opportunities for students to learn to perform Thai dancing which reflected the theme. The students showed their great talents which everyone enjoyed and admired. Traditional games like egg scooping and sand castle building added more fun to the event.
