Culture

2018

A selection of 25 Year 5 students based on their consistent work ethic, positive attitude and respectful social behaviour towards Indonesian had the priviledge to visit the Consulate and learnt to play ‘Gamelan’.  This instrumental ensemble music played on a variety of metal pots, gongs, and drums. Some students even get to learn to play with ‘Wayang Golek’.

On August 2018, Balinese Principal, Wayan Tur Adnyana lead a group of 13 educators to the school.  The school visit is beneficial to both Balinese and WA teachers and students as cultural information is exchanged and hands-on experience gained in a classroom.

The students in Banksia 4 (Year 1) learnt to make ‘Canang Sari’, daily Balinese offerings. The phrase ‘Canang Sari’ is derived from the Balinese words sari means essence and canang means a small palm-leaf basket as the tray.

Students from the Indonesian Club learnt to play ‘Angklung’ , a traditional musical instrument from Indonesia made of a varying number of bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame.  The teacher from MUISA (Murdoch University Indonesian Students Association) came on 9 June 2017 and taught the students the song ‘Waltzing Matilda’.

‘Experience The Cultural Wonders of Bali’ was the theme of our cultural show on 16 September 2017 at the Performing Arts Centre in Ellenbrook Secondary College.  Aveley Primary School was very lucky to work collaboratively with Eling Nusantara Foundation from Bali and Ms Rose Ngatikao of Indonesian Dance Studio Perth in presenting this awesome event.
