Wai Kroo Day at Mr. Elvis' School

At the beginning of the school year, students throughout Thailand show respect to their teachers on "Wai Kroo Day."

Each student brings to their teacher either an elaborately hand crafted bouquet of flowers.....

Or a few flowers, picked from their family garden wrapped in leaves...

Walking on their knees, the students present the flowers to their teachers.

While the students lay down on the flower in front of their teachers, the teacher touches the student's head and passes on a blessing to them.
