National Batik Day
To foster pride for being an Indonesian, the National Batik Day was celebrated in October 2. All teachers, staff & students were encouraged to wear their Batik clothing on that day as a sign of their unity & pride as people of Indonesia. Commemorating the event is the school’s simple act of inculcating in the children the love for one’s country, one’s own Language – Bahasa Indonesia, one’s own roots, culture & traditions.
It is our hope that through wearing Batik on the National Batik Day annually, we promote a love for Indonesia and increase pride as a citizen of this country. We likewise appeal to the hearts of the non-Indonesians to develop respect & tolerance for others, them being a part of the school where most of their peers are indigenous citizens.
