Children's Day in Bangkok, Thailand

new friends from Thailand

We have new friends from Udomsuksa School, Bangkok, Thailand. Udomsuksa School is a Thai Private School with an English Prgram following the curriculum specified by the Ministry of Education. This school is existing for more than 35 years already. It's a big school with 4,000 students enrolled from Nursery to Grade 12. Ms. Sally Medina shared with us "Children's Day Around the World" project on the eLanguages website and our friends told us how this special day is celebrated in their country.

"Children's Day in Thailand falls every 2nd Saturday in January no matter what date it falls. Government offices and different organizations conduct different activities for the children on this day. The Prime Minister's office is opened and allow children to experience sitting on the Prime Minister's chair and act like a real minister.Children will be interviewed how they feel sitting on the prime minister's chair. Military bases are opened also to let children try to be on a plane and let them survey the inside of it. Most parents bring their children to different places like zoo, parks and shopping malls. School conduct simple activities for their pupils and students a day before the real Children's Day."
Thank you Ms Medina for joining our project on eLanguages and looking forward for more collaboration.
