Selamat Dating Widya
Teacher Loretta Morabito, teaches Indonesian each week to students from Year 3 to Year 6 and this week the school and students have had a special visitor. Widya from the Indonesian-Australia Language Foundation in Bali, and a teacher herself, was warmly received into the classrooms.
Widya visited our Stage 1 classroom on Wednesday afternoon, presenting the students with the chance to learn more about her country, its ways and customs, the language, traditional clothing and dances.
Widya participated in our Rewards Day on Thursday and enjoyed ten bowling and roller skating – which she had never done before. She commented on how beautiful and caring the Stage 3 students were towards her; offering assistance out on the skating rink.
Due to the busyness of the end of term and Stage 2 & 3 away at cricket, Widya spent Friday morning with our Kindergarten students and introduced them to Bahasa Indonesia through song and movement.
After her short visit to our school Widya mentioned that she wished she had visited Kyogle earlier during her month long stay on the North Coast as she was so overwhelmed by the welcome she received by both students and staff.
The students loved having Widya visit! It was a fantastic experience for students and staff!
