Today the children and staff of Bloomsbury celebrated the more important holiday in the school year; Songkran. Songkran is the start of the new Thai year and is a chance to celebrate new beginnings. The children took part in a ceremony with a visiting monk to bless all the teachers but pouring water on their hands. The children also took part in a competition to build traditional and modern style sand pagodas. The sun shone on this joyous and auspicious day at Bloomsbury, and everyone had a wonderful day!
