Students from Karangmojo #1 State Junior High, Yogyakarta (SMPN 1 Karangmojo) taught visitors to ICT Week at Federation Square, Melbourne, how to do the Indonesian poco-poco dance on September 7th! School excursion all the way from Indonesia to Australia, right? Wrong. Indonesian students taught the dance to peers from Heathmont College, Victoria, via video conferencing using Skype.
The relationship between Leongatha Primary School in Victoria and Pondok Labu 11 Primary School in Indonesia is one of the 60 school partnerships between Australia and Indonesia formed under the BRIDGE program of Melbourne University's Asia Education Foundation since it started in 2008. Its success led to it being featured in the Australian Government's recent white paper, Australia in the Asian Century, as an example of innovative learning practices to connect with Asia.
In late May 2012, Kormilda College in the Northern Territory hosted a second visit from its BRIDGE Partner school, SMA Negeri 15 Surabaya.
"I have really enjoyed this whole experience. It really is an eye-opener about how different their lives in Indonesia are compared to ours in Darwin. I have never been to Indonesia before but I would love to one day. All I ever hear about is Bali, but this experience has made me realise that there is more to Indonesia than JUST Bali and someday my family and I will go to Surabaya."
Mount Tarcoola Primary School and partner school SD Negeri 4 Wates put pen to paper to cement their dedication to each other and the Australia-Indonesia BRIDGE School Partnerships Project.
Asia Education Foundation's insight:
The two schools signed a Memorandum of Agreement, signalling a strengthening of their relationship. The visit to Wates was a reciprocal visit, following the visit to Geraldton by SD Negeri 4 Wates teachers Ibu Arni and Ibu Sutarjilah in March this year.
