Welcome 2012!

As 2011 came to an end, DEPDC/GMS’ staff and students came together to celebrate the beginning of 2012, or 2555 (pronounced song-ha-ha-ha) by the Buddhist calendar. The New Year was celebrated through a fun-filled day of games, dancing, singing, and most excitingly, a gift exchange!

All staff and students brought a wrapped gift to the party, and between games, songs, and dance, presents were distributed randomly through pulling numbers out of a box, each number corresponding with one gift. Students squealed with delight as they anticipated unwrapping their surprise, including stuffed animals, toys, cookies, arts and crafts supplies, CDs, and more!

Many of the Half Day School students from each grade worked for weeks practicing song and dance routines to perform for their fellow students and staff on stage. The audience loved watching and listening to their talented classmates and the entire school was filled with smiles and laughter throughout the day.

From all of us here at DEPDC/GMS, Sa-wat-dii bpii mai!*

*That’s Happy New Year in Thai
