In Week Five, Mundaring Christian College celebrated Indonesian Independence Day by having a week-long celebration.
Starting on Monday 15 August, Primary and Secondary campuses were both covered in red and white with staff and students wearing the colours of Indonesian flag.
It was a fantastic event with everyone participating in activities organised for the day. Year One and Two students cooked prawn crackers during Indonesian class, there was a cracker eating competition as well as Bakiak race, and as always the food stalls were popular!
The Secondary campus continued the celebration until the end of the week, where students cooked and sold Indonesian snacks and drinks. The Indonesian National anthem was played through the loud speaker on the actual Indonesian Independence Day; Wednesday 17 August.
Most importantly, the week was not only about celebrating when Indonesia gained its independence, but to celebrate languages. The highlight was hearing all the SCEAVision contestants perform in front of their peers, teachers and parents at assemblies as well as during the SCEAVision performance night. Well done to all involved.
A huge thank you to parents who helped their child make Indonesian food or drinks. To parents of SCEAVision finalists, your encouragement to your son or daughter that they can sing in another language is inspiring.
Finally, of course to all staff at the College who helped make the event a successful and enjoyable one. In total, we raised over $650.00. We continue to be a proud adopted parents of Pongo the Orang utan and a Sumatran tiger from Perth Zoo.
