Bangkok, Thailand – 16 December 2020, DBS Denla British School, an international school which bases its curriculum on the British independent school model from the UK, under the Denla Group, once again emphasises its unique British identity by hosting extravaganza Christmas celebrations, including the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Christmas Fair on the school’s campus. In addition, DBS will also be sharing its festive happiness with the surrounding community by donating money to charities to help those in need.
The DBS community of students, teachers, parents, and staff held a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony for the very first time. The event featured a Christmas-themed drama play, musical performances from the DBS orchestra and choir, culminating in a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, conducted by the Principal Mark McVeigh, and the Well-being Manager Lisa McVeigh, with the rest of the DBS community singing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”, reinforcing the harmonious community of the DBS family.
Joyous festivity and happiness continued with the DBS Christmas Fair, which has been organised for the third year, but with an expanded programme of amusement rides on the campus, menus served by food trucks, students’ musical performances, and the raffle prizes. The raffle is a British tradition of raising money for charity by selling numbered tickets that are drawn at random to win prizes. DBS will donate the revenue to charity and foundations in Nonthaburi province, namely Rainbow House – for children with disabilities in Pakred, Wat Singthong School, and the Aomgred Community Hospital.
