Campus Developments

Campus developments copyMuch maintenance and cleaning work took place over the June/July break as well as progress toward completion of the final stages of the major site redevelopment project, with the mini football field due for completion by the end of September.

While there have been inevitable delays, as one might expect in Indonesia, the work continues and we are certainly looking forward to this additional recreation space. The students are certainly excited as the playing surface takes shape.

Several other smaller projects are planned for completion between now and the December break. These include:

• Addition of security cameras to the canteen and other outside areas on campus
• Resurfacing of the swimming pool surrounds

• An additional playground in the covered area by the Year 1 & 2 block with associated rubberised playing surface
• Crash mats surrounding pillars in gym and covered play areas

• Maintenance of the existing playground equipment.

The modern and comprehensive facilities are certainly a wonderful selling point for ACG International School Jakarta, and while some parents were recently seen reminiscing over pictures of the original campus, they are nonetheless excited to see the redevelopment plans so close to being completed.

Welcome School Year 2013-14

On 13 August, we welcomed many new students, staff and families to ACG International School Jakarta.

It was a very hectic start to the year, with 24 new staff and close to 150 new students; however, I was heartened to see so many smiling faces and warm welcomes from students, parents and staff during the first days of school.

The Gymnasium was almost full, with  students, staff  and parents joining together in an assembly to welcome in the new school year and all those new to the school community. I have certainly enjoyed meeting many parents and students over the past few weeks and have appreciated their warm welcome. I look forward to getting to know more families as the year progresses.

Interview with the new Principal: Henri Bemelmans

New Principal - Henri Bemelmans in ACG Jarkata IndonesiaEducational background & work experience

While studying toward my Bachelor of Science degree (Chemistry/Chemical Engineering Science) at Monash University, I had in the back of my mind that I would like to become a teacher. I went on to complete my Diploma in Education - also at Monash University - in Math and Chemistry.

I started my career in education in 1986 at an inner city Catholic Boys College in Melbourne. It was not an easy assignment, particularly in that first year, but the experience taught me much. After two years, I moved to the co-ed environment of MacKillop Catholic Regional College in the outer Melbourne suburb of Werribee, where I was able to pursue my interest in teaching senior Computer Studies and Chemistry. At this time I also commenced a Graduate Diploma in Information Systems to formalise my interest in IT.

At the end of that year, I was offered a Graduate Traineeship with Colonial Mutual, a large Insurance Company, and I took that chance to try something new. As a Systems Analyst/Programmer, I developed and supported various systems in their Investment Management Division.

Congratulations to our Year 6 students and their teachers for a very successful PYP Exhibition. Our Year 6 students impressed us with their unit of inquiry investigating "Our cultural heritage influences our individual forms of expression". The Year 6 students performed an exciting introduction to their Exhibition which captivated the audience. Visitors were then guided by the Year 6 students through a learning journey of the PYP from Kindergarten to Year 6. Everyone enjoyed celebrating the exhibition and we are very proud of all our primary students – particularly our Year 6 .
