Indonesian Day

Today the students in our school participated in our annual

Indonesian Day

Indonesian is one of our specialist subjects, and all classes have a one hour session with our Indonesian teacher, Bu Wall, every week. Learning a second language is a valuable experience and it is great to see the students’ Indonesian skills improve each term.

To celebrate our Indonesian program, today’s special day involved students rotating around a variety of cultural activities. These included:

  • Making masks
  • Creating puppets
  • Participating in Indonesian dancing
  • Learning about Indonesian music and using an iPad app to create a musical sequence.
  • Playing the games Congklak and Main Karet
  • Exploring the Batik art form
  • Sampling traditional Indonesian fruits
  • Tasting Mie Goreng

Check out the slideshow featuring the 4A and 4B students enjoying Indonesian day!

It was wonderful to see the students enjoying the cultural experiences and having fun in their multi-aged groups!


 Terima kasih Bu Wall untuk mengatur Hari Indonesia!

      Same here. The noodles were delicious! Thankyou Miss Jordan and Miss Curtain for serving the noodles. Bu Walls mum IS a really good cook. Here is my Indonesian sentence. Terima kasih Nona Jordan dan Miss Tirai untuk melayani mie delicious!

      Banyak terima kasih kepada Bu Wall untuk mengatur hari!

    • Hi Nellstar,

      Indonesian day was very fun to participate in! My favorourite activity to do was the games section. We got to play 15 minutes each on a game of congclak ( pronounced as choncklak) and main karet.

      A sentence I can think of in Indonesian is “ Apa Kabar” this means “ How are you feeling”.

      Tasting the Mie Goreng was very interesting to eat, but was really nice ( from my opinion) !


  3. Hi 4A and 4B,
    I at Leopold Primary School we do Indonesian as well. At the moment we are making a book about us and the whole class is doing it.

    Slamet pagi

  5. Dear 4A and 4B,

    Indonesian day was great!

    My favourite activitys were the hot and cold food tasting. Even though the food was really different from what we eat, it was really yummy! For the cold food tasting, we ate fruit. My favourite fruit was the mangosteen but it looked really gross.

    In the hot food tasting we ate noodles. I think they were really yummy and delouse. Bu Walls mum did a great job for cooking so many noodles!

    Selamat Pagi! Saya tinngal de mana? (Sorry if there are any words spelt wrong 🙂 )

    What was your favourite fruit that you tasted?

    Eevie 😉

  6. Hi 4A and 4B

    I thought Indonesian day was great, I loved the mei goreng and the fruit sampling.

    My personal favourite was Mango mentah, Mango mentah is Mango that is not ripe yet, I think it just tasted like sour Mango.

    Hope you all enjoyed the food,
    Terima kasi

  7. Dear 4A and 4B,

    I really enjoyed Indonesian day and I can’t wait to next year!

    I liked all the activitys but my all time favourite was the Mie gorang. My rating was 10/10 and a five star rating.

    This is my sentence in Indonesian…
    Halo nama saya Ella. Apa Kabar? Aku pergi ke sekolah di Barwon Heads. Guru saya adalah Miss Jordan. Sumpaih Jumpa.

    Hello my name is Ella. How are you? I go to school in Barwon Heads. My teacher is Miss Jordan. Good bye.

    Hope you liked my couple of sentences and maybe if someone replied you could answer to Apa Kabar.

  10. Hi Everyone,

    L.O.T.E Day was amazing! I think that Bu Wall did a great job with the activities and games! Everyone espesicially liked the noodles Bu Walls mum made! (:

    My favourite activite was decorating the masks. I made a really cool rainbow mask with black in between on the head piece bit. It looked so good when I finished it! I also saw a few other really good masks too.

    What was your favourite activity?

    See you soon,

  11. Hello everyone,
    Mmmmmm, noodles, I could dream about them all day! It was the best food I had on Indonesian day. What was your favorite food?

    Umur sayer pergi ker kumer kecil. This means could I please go to the toilet, ( sorry, I wasn’t sure how to spell it

  12. Hi 4A and 4B,

    Cooper and I did every activity together

  13. Hello bloggers,

    I really enjoyed Indonesian Day! My favourite activity was the fruit sampling. I suka (liked) mangosteen the best. Did you know that mangosteen is used to cure some types of cancer and if you eat lots of it you will become very healthy. But I tidak suka (don’t like) durian. It looks like chicken.

    I will do a Indonesian conversation and then translate it for you:
    Selamat pagi. Selamat pagi. Siapa nama kamu? Nama saya Tilly. Apar kapar? Saya hebat. Berapa umur kamu? Umur saya sembilan tahun. Kamu tinggal di mana? Saya tinggal di Geelong. Sampai jumpa. Sampai jumpa.
    Good morning. Good morning. What is your name? My name is Tilly. How are you? I’m awesome. How old are you? I am 9 years old. Where do you live? I live in Geelong. Goodbye. Goodbye.

    Toodle pip,
