Happy Khmer New Year!

13 Apr

We have finished this term with a small Khmer New Year party. 

As covid is still rife we were not able to invite the wider community to join the festivities, but it was still great fun to celebrate with the younger students. We played all the regular traditional games, with sack races, tug of wars, talc filled balloons and breaking of pots, along with eating lots of fruit and jelly. 

Everyone will spend next week celebrating with families and attending Pagodas. At this time they, with the monks, will make blessings to their ancestors, and ask for their ancestors to bless them with safety, success and luck for the coming year, in return. 

We wish this for you all too!

    OUR DEAR FRIENDS AT THE GOODVILL CENTER S-VILLE!

    Thanks so much for all nice pictures from Happy Khmer New Year. So many laughing and happy children. Of course we are hoping to come back to Sihanoukville one day, but as Henrik is no longer living there, ( he is in Kampot now) we do not know. Anyhow, we hope you will continue sending us your nice pictures. We wish you all the best and good luck with the school!
