Anglo Chinese School (Independent) mesmerized by Javanese Culture.

For 6 days, 19 students and teachers from ACS visited schools and arts centres in Jogja and Solo. They were introduced to the arts,cultures and traditions of Javanese.

In SMP 1 Jogja and SMK Bantul, they learnt about Gamelan and basic dance steps. The trainers from the school were impressed by the student’s interest and dedication to learn that in 15mins of training, they were already able to play the instruments and dance.

They also visited famous sites like Borobudur and Prambanan and learnt about the heritage and history of the people.

The students found that they have learnt alot from the trip. As students in the ACS Regional Studies Programme, the objectives of the visit were not only to learn about the places that they are visiting but also to interact with the locals. They had a goid interaction with residents from local orphanage in Bantul.

They truly enjoyed the experiences.
