ELS Barrier Game developing listening and speaking skillsMonday, 26 May 2014 11:14
The ELS team received a teaching resource made by Miss Julie, (Miss Melinda’s sister).
This ‘Barrier Game’ develops listening and speaking skills.
You place a barrier between 2 students. Each student has a doll shape, an identical set of hats, shirts and trousers for their ‘person’. One student selects a hat, shirt and trousers for their person and then describes the outfit to the other student. The listener has to choose the outfit based on the description. Students then compare the outfits to see if they have been successful in speaking and listening.
The first ELS group to play this game came from Year 3. It was a valuable learning experience that allowed even the shyest speaker to talk in a non-threatening context. All of the students were enthusiastic. They developed more specific vocabulary incorporating mathematical language.
Students comments included “ The bestest ( best) game I have ever played.” “ I like this game.” “I had fun.”

The whole school were challenged to decorate their classroom doors using this theme. There were a great range of activities during Book Week, students were involved in buddy reading with other classes, book reviews, daily DEAR (Drop Everything and Read), library fun games to name but a few. For the secondary students, there was a story writing competition in Bahasa Indonesia and in English. There were three book stalls in the lobby selling books which were very popular with students and parents. The Parent Support Group (PSG) helped decorate a new reading corner in the library, it provides a comfortable spot for reading.

International DayTuesday, 01 April 2014 00:00
ACG International School of Jakarta's International Day Celebrations took place on Friday 7th March to coincide with World Mother Language Day. To recognise ACG’s New Zealand heritage, the assembly was formally opened with a welcome in Maori by Mr Rhys James who then led our New Zealand staff and students in a traditional Maori Haka.
This was followed by several performances and a welcome on stage to students and staff of each of the 39 Nationalities represented at ACG International School of Jakarta by the flag and National Anthem from each country. Students were able to navigate the various country tables set up around the gym on their special passports and sample wonderful drinks, food and other cultural delights.
Our sincere thanks to Ms Sophia, Mr Chris and Ms Anna for their coordination of this event and to the PSG organizing committee and all the parents for helping to make this such a wonderful event. Your support is greatly appreciated, the opportunity to celebrate together is so important in building a community of mutual respect and understanding.
