International Day At BWYA - 2024

This International Day celebration at BWYA was the first time the entire school got to celebrate the international community together. The day began with a poignant speech by our Principal of Primary – Mr Sharpe, followed by a fantastic day of activities throughout BWYA. Have a watch of the video below to see what everyone got up to

All over the school, each homeroom had a designated country and had arranged activities, games, and information to educate and entertain travelling tourists. That’s right! Each country had their own border control desk and you had to get your passport stamped before entering. Some intrepid travellers may have even collected all the stamps!

We were also joined by the following individuals from the Indonesian embassy, 

Deputy Chief of Mission & Vice Embassador: Parulian Silalahi

Staff of Education Affairs: Erashima Saragih

Auditor for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology: Rahmania Dyah Priyanti

The team gave a talk to the whole school about Indonesian culture and gave the students a quiz to see if they could remember the trivia, along with some prizes for the correct answers! So thank you very much to the Indonesian embassy for spending your valuable time with us at BWYA.

Unfortunately for the students, the world cup football match between teachers and students finished 1-0 to the teachers. Better luck next year guys.

The way the whole school banded together and experienced this international day as a complete unit was brilliant for all to see. Roll on 2025!
