Selamat Bu Hurt pada Hari Indonesia yang luar biasa! Congratulations Bu Hurt on a great Indonesian Day! For anyone who missed assembly, this special day was launched with a performance from our Year 1 students, who sung ‘Di Sini Senang’ with accompanying actions and props. A group of Year 3 and Year 4 students also played the angklung for us- this is an instrument that originated in Indonesia but is popular throughout South-East Asia. I wonder if anyone in the audience could pick the song that was being played? Oscar, Noah and Izzy shared some tales from their recent trip to Indonesia- I loved hearing about the cheeky monkeys that were stealing towels from their deck! Pak Sinnott and Bu Osborne also told us some fun facts about themselves, all spoken in Indonesian. We learnt that they both love pizza! Finally, we enjoyed a presentation from Ms. Bonnie Hermawan, Senior Project Officer at the Department of Education and Training, who talked to us about the importance of learning another language and shared her own journey with us, detailing all the amazing experiences she has had as a result of learning Indonesian. After the assembly, the students spent the day taking part in a range of activities- Indonesian puppet making, board games, cultural music, dance and art. Thank you for organising and running the day Bu Hurt, it was a fantastic experience for all the students and something they will remember for many years to come! Thank you also to our Captains for their brilliant leadership of assembly, introducing each speaker or performance so well. Thank you to our wonderful teachers, administration and Inclusion staff for supporting this event to run so smoothly across the school and finally, many thanks to our parent community for coming in to visit classrooms and for helping to find red and white items of clothing for their child to wear! What a highlight in our school calendar.
