Southern Christian College | Asia Education Foundation | BRIDGE News | Scoop.it
Asia Education Foundation's insight:

Language learning is a big part of students’ education at Southern Christian College. Indonesian has been our focus language since 1998 and is studied progressively by all students from kindergarten through to Grade 10.

When the Australia – Indonesia BRIDGE School Partnerships project was advertised, the College jumped at the chance to build on our program of engagement with Indonesia. It is a program that not only has the support of the school leadership team but their active engagement and a whole-of-school approach that has teachers and parents learning the language and, in some cases, travelling to Indonesia with the College.

6.2 Leongatha Primary School—connecting with Indonesia | Australia in the Asian Century

6.2 Leongatha Primary School—connecting with Indonesia | Australia in the Asian Century | BRIDGE News | Scoop.it
Asia Education Foundation's insight:

For one school in particular, ‘the BRIDGE project was an ideal opportunity to involve the school with Indonesia. We wanted to go beyond the walls of the school, beyond our area, and indeed beyond Australia.’

Irene Beasley is the only teacher of Indonesian at Leongatha Primary School in Gippsland, in the heart of Victorian dairying country. Leongatha Primary is partnered with SD Pondok Labu 11, a school in the bustling 10 million‑strong metropolis of Jakarta. The two schools connect classes through Skype. This enables the children to have authentic, real‑time, face‑to‑face conversations. ‘We try to speak Indonesian at our end and they speak English,’ Irene said. The students investigate and use a range of Web 2.0 technologies to exchange their ideas, interests and information about their country and culture. These exchanges have led to regular teacher exchanges, and in 2012, to the first student exchanges.
