The students and teachers of the School of International Culture and Study, Yuxi Normal University, celebrated Songkran Festival on April 12.

  

The celebration began with a kneeling-down-to-teacher ceremony where the Thai students took the lead to show respect to the teachers. 

The ceremony was followed by the Thai-food tasting, beauty pageant and water splashing, as well as singing and dancing where the international students jointed hands for merry-making. 

The School of International Culture and Study has organized the festivity annually since 2014. 

The festival enjoyed great popularity among the international students, especially those from Thailand and Laos. 

As the traditional New Year's Day in ASEAN countries, Songkran Festival is celebrated on April 13 to 15. 

Situated in central Yunnan’s Yuxi City, Yuxi Normal University began to recruit international students 20 years ago.
