What better way to welcome the first day of the Lunar New Year than to celebrate with a Lion dance performance. The lively Lions entertained us with their playful poses and acrobatic skills while accompanied by the music of beating drums, cymbals, and gongs. We were especially honoured to have our very own Marco and Marlo Widodo perform in their first ever Lion dance with the dance troupe. They stole the show with their artistic movements and adorable cos-tume. Following the performance, we engaged in variety of cultural activities, with our Secondary students taking on a leadership role in working with our Primary students. It was a delightful morning with many smiles and lots of RED clothes to ensure good luck and fortune for the New Year. Happy 2013! (Miss Lily)

As part of our earlier Unit of Inquiry that focused around 'Rights and Responsibilities', the Year Six Class decided to do a fundraiser. After studying human rights, students felt it was important that all children around the world have the right to an education. Therefore, they felt that the proceeds of the fundraiser should go to the ACG supported fund that has built schools in secluded areas of Indonesia. After learning that approximately Rp. 1.000.000 can send a student to school for an entire year, they jumped into action with that being their monetary target.
The class decided that a two day fundraiser would be adequate to raise the needed funds. They organized a 'food fair' where ethnic foods from their various countries would be sold. The second day would be sporting events where students could win prizes for the Soccer Shootout and Water Balloon Toss.

Our Year 3/4 students investigated a Unit of Inquiry titled, “People help others in need”. They discussed what type of people might be in need in Jakarta and decided there would be sick people, starving people, children without education and lonely people. As the Unit developed the students progressed to discussing ideas concerning ‘how’ to help people, and learnt about providing short term and long term assistance. They understood that giving people food might only benefit them for a few days, and the students finally concluded that if people have a job they will have access to a sustainable income and therefore be able to feed themselves.
