On 24 August 2017, 17 Indonesian students travelled to Perth from Kairos Gracia Christian School in Jakarta to experience the Australian culture and practice the English language.
To kick off day one, students visited Fremantle before settling in with their host family and then staying at Lake Leschenaultia. After coming from a warm and humid climate, it took a while to adjust to the chilly Hills air.
The next day was full of adventure as the group went Four Wheel Driving and sandboarding in the sand dunes of Lancelin, lead by Mr Anderson together with Mr Bailey and teachers and families from our school.
During their stay, the Indonesian students were able to learn more about our local area by touring around Mundaring and Perth, including Mundaring Weir, Kings Park, Perth Mint and Elizabeth Quay. Some even got up close to some of the Australian native wildlife at the Caversham Wildlife Park with their host families.
After hearing so much about our International friends, our MCC students finally got to meet them as they shared classes during the day.
During their last three days here, Indonesian students and a group of MCC students headed off to Nanga Bush Camp for an outback adventure. Everyone was pumped as they took on the low-ropes course, team building activities, boomerang throwing competition, bike riding and were treated with delicious food cooked by Mr B.
Thank you to Mr Bailey, the Camp Leader, for such a great camp. A huge thanks to all the hosting families, staff and teachers that helped make everything happen.
I am looking forward to taking our students to Indonesia next year to visit them.
