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!
The children and staff of Bloomsbury finally got to celebrate the joy of books and reading by celebrating world book day. All the children dressed up as their favourite characters inspired by their most loved books and took part in a parade in the morning sunlight. A wonderful morning at Bloomsbury that was well worth the wait.
