P1100640Khmer New Year: celebration at pre-school

Mid of April is the Khmer New Year celebration when all Khmer people go to the pagodas and celebrate by worshipping ancient people who had already passed away. During these three days of celebration, Khmer people usually spend the morning at home with their siblings and the afternoon by playing some traditional games and by listening the preaches of monks in the pagoda. The most significant day of the feast is called Virak Loeng Sak (Merit’s promotion day), when Khmer people literally wet parents and old relatives in order to gain forgiveness. In the afternoon, they go to the pagoda to throw water on Buddha’s statues with the purpose of asking for a bright future. 

 

DSCN0170Then people play and dance together until night.To encourage the preschool children and to create awareness among parents about the importance of attending school, we celebrated Khmer New Year in 15 preschool classes in Kompong Chhnang province. We took the opportunity to thank parents for their commitment to send their children to school every day during this period. We also express our gratitude to school directors and local authorities who we built an efficient cooperation with. As a result of our invitations, there were 464 preschool students, 373 parents, and 73 local authority members. Also a New Humanity representative took part to the celebration. He had the chance to underline the substantial role of those parents who had a very important involvement in the community preschool. Without their support, community preschool could not exist and lead to such a good result. On the other hand, mothers, school directors, village and community leaders thanked New Humanity for implementing the community preschool in their own communities. Without New Humanity, children would not be able to attend school and gain knowledge during this very important stage of their lives. During the event, the community preschool children performed several activities learnt at school, such as singing, reading poems and playing games. At the end of the event, all participants shared a convivial lunch to thank each other and they renewed their strong commitment for the future.

Ha preso parte ai festeggiamenti anche un rappresentante di New Humanity, che ha sottolineato il ruolo P1130549 50sostanziale di quei genitori che hanno dato un significativo contributo alla comunità del pre-scuola. Senza il loro aiuto, il pre-scuola non sarebbe stato possibile e non avrebbe portato a risultati così positivi. A loro volta, mamme, direttori scolastici e capi villaggio hanno voluto ringraziare New Humanity per aver introdotto la realtà del pre-scuola nelle loro comunità. Senza il lavoro di New Humanity, i bambini non avrebbero potuto frequentare la scuola e acquisire importanti conoscenze in questo fondamentale stadio del loro percorso formativo. Durante i festeggiamenti i bambini hanno avuto modo di esibirsi: hanno cantato, recitato poesie, fatto diversi giochi, tutte attività imparate a scuola. La festa si è conclusa con un pranzo conviviale in cui sono proseguiti i ringraziamenti reciproci e si è rinnovato l’impegno comune per il futuro.
