Loy Krathong

Making Lanna style lanterns

Middle school students visit the Meuang Sat Luang Community to learn how to make Lanna style lanterns in various shapes and designs from Khun Bualai Khanapanya, one of the best creators of Lanna lanterns in Thailand, in celebration of the Loy Krathong festival.

Making Krathongs

In elementary school, students learnt how to build krathongs in a variety of styles and out of various materials. The creation of Lanna lanterns was taught to middle school students. High school students took pleasure in creating their own freestyle krathongs.

All of our krathongs were made from natural materials since CMIS was concerned about the environment.

Loy Krathong (releasing)

This year, high school students are participating in the Loy Krathong holiday by creating their own Krathongs and releasing them into the Ping River. Teachers and students traveled on foot from CMIS to the Scorpion Tailed River Boat. Everyone brought their adorned Krathongs. The students wished as they cast their Krathongs into the Ping River. The activity was enjoyable for the students and left a lasting impression.
