“Selamat Datang” (Welcome)
MCC covered the campus in red and white as we celebrated Indonesian Independence Day.
On Monday 16 August, the Primary and Secondary students enjoyed a day of Indonesian performances, cuisine, and fun activities. To start the morning, members from “Perth Indonesian Church” performed a traditional Indonesian dance called “Poco Poco” during our Assembly. Students joined in and clapped as our guests performed. We also had the privilege of hearing from professional football player “Robbie Gaspar” who came and shared his experience of living and playing football in Indonesia. Students had some great questions for Robbie during the Q & A section of the morning.
The Year 7 students cooked and sold Indonesian snacks and drinks to students and staff across the campus. This was a great opportunity for them to research and learn about the Indonesian culture and present to the school what they have learned through food. There was a great selection of food and drinks, the aroma of deliciousness filled the campus.
All money raised on the day was donated to “Opportunity International” and “Perth Indonesian Church”. Opportunity International is a worthy organization that empowers women in developing countries. Opportunity International provides microfinance and training to these women to help them transform their and their family’s lives and futures.
