On Wednesday 20 March, Year 4 students went on a field trip to visit a neighbouring school in Ragunan. The purpose of the visit was to deliver books the school had purchased with the money raised during the Read-a-thon. The fundraiser was such a success that we were able to take three boxes full of books to our new friends who greeted us by singing, playing music and putting on a pantomime.
At the SDN01 Pagi Ragunan school, Year 4 students sat paired up with their new friends to participate in shared reading and then had morning tea together. The visit was such a mutually-rewarding venture that the students decided to be Pen Pals with each other. Upon returning to school, the Year 4 students wrote letters in Bahasa Indonesia and included a photo of themselves. We are keen to reciprocate the visit and host our new friends in Term 4.
