Gratitude Day 2018

On March 2nd, the Teuk Thla community celebrated Gratitude Day, a Salesian Feast Day started by Don Bosco! The community spent one month preparing for this Feast Day by learning and practicing dances, songs, and plays. Each student, teacher, staff member, and Sister had a heart envelop into which others could put thank you notes. I celebrated Gratitude Day two times — once with the whole community and once with just the Sisters. All five of us volunteers performed a dance sequence for Gratitude Day. Each of us taught the group a dance that is characteristic or representative of our country in some way. Here is what we danced:

The Tango taught by Sonia from Argentina

The Vienna Waltz taught by Lena from Austria

The Cotton Eye Joe taught by me

Schuhplattler (a traditional Austrian folk dance) taught by Bella from Austria

A combination of Malay, Chinese, and Hindi dances taught by Sophia from Singapore
