Extending across the ACG School Jakarta curricular and co-curricular activities, the initiatives are operated entirely by ACG’s Secondary students and include producing a monthly digital magazine, managing the Student Council’s Instagram account, and running the school’s radio station.
The ACG Times is a digital magazine which shares information about school and campus life.
With the help of the School Principal and teachers, ACG Times has become a popular and well-regarded news source, widely subscribed to by ACG parents and teachers.
STUCO Instagram is the official Instagram account of ACG School Jakarta’s Student Council. Started in October 2019, the platform updates the ACG Jakarta community about the various school events the council runs. One of the moderators, Year 12 Prefect Lina Hutchinson, highlights how this account is different from the school’s main Instagram page due to it being entirely student-led.
Founded in 2018 by one of ACG School Jakarta’s Senior Teachers, Richard Todd, the ACG Radio Station allows students to learn and explore professional broadcast practices. They have the chance to write scripts, conduct research and interviews, and produce content using Rodecaster Pro, a fully integrated podcast production studio.
There are four Houses at ACG School Jakarta – Cicaks, Gecko, Biawaks and Komodos. Throughout the School, students are allocated to one of these Houses for sporting, cultural and other activities. House-based programmes provide additional ways for students to build relationships with other students across the school. Students are very supportive. There is a clear expectation that older students will always care for their younger peers.
KarangKita (meaning “Our Corals”) is a project by Salsa, Adam, and Alisha of Year 13 for our CAS Project, which is required to complete the IB Diploma Programme. The goal is not only to spread awareness on the conditions of our coral reefs and the importance of their welfare but also to make sure that people minimize the damage of these corals by replanting the corals that will last for future generations to come. The students are using Instagram to share information and updates about corals and are selling pins as their primary method of fundraising to replant corals in Kiluan Dolphin Beach, Lampung, Indonesia. Please support this great cause by purchasing the pins by contacting and following them on Instagram @KarangKita or by sharing with others about KarangKita!
