St Andrews honour the late King Rama !X by planting marigold flowers in their playground

Published by Admin

Kindergarten children planted yellow Marigold flowers in honour of the late King Rama IX, that were kindly donated by parents. In Thai ‘ Dok Dao Rueng’ is the word for Marigold which literally means ’Shining Star’. This flower is regarded as auspicious and is a symbol of the joy of life and prosperity, and His Majesty’s virtues are therefore remembered by the ever blooming and long lasting Marigold flowers. The seeds were first brought to Thailand by His Majesty from The Netherlands back in 1967, and he particularly loved their bright yellow colour. The IB Learner profile this week is to be 'open-minded' which includes respecting each other’s cultures, so this was a timely occasion for all the children to demonstrate their respect for the late King Rama IX and the Thai culture. Thank you very much to the parents who were involved in this commemoration.
