In Thailand they have great respect for teachers. In June every school celebrates Teacher Respect Day. Its a ceremony where all the children you teach give you offerings of flowers and bow down before you. We had our a couple of weeks ago. Thought you might like to see the photos. The kids offered all the teachers their respect, and then were really naughty for the rest of the ceremony, throwing flowers around, slidding on their knees and talking all the way through. Quite ironic and amusing really.

Anyway, after the ceremony they all had homework to write about their teachers. A few wrote about Kris and me so we put them on here. They definately made us smile!!
