Indonesian Language Teaching Assistants in Canberra presented with Certificates of Appreciation, 20 October 2017

Primary and secondary school teachers of Indonesian were honoured at a gala dinner hosted by the Balai Bahasa Indonesia (BBI-ACT) at the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra on Friday, 20 October 2017. Teachers and School Principals from at least 15 ACT government and non-government schools attended the dinner which an opportunity to exchange classroom experiences teaching Indonesian to students in Canberra. Certificates of Appreciation were handed out to 10 Indonesian Language Teaching Assistants who give up time outside their own academic studies in Canberra tertiary institutions to teach in Canberra schools under a MOU between the ACT Education Directorate and the Indonesian Embassy. Guests were treated to a three-course Indonesian meal, Balinese gamelan music performed by local enthusiasts and traditional Indonesian dances. They heard a keynote address by Bapak Halim Nataprawira from the Queensland Department of Education who delivered an insightful presentation on the use of formal versus informal Bahasa Indonesia.

BBI (ACT) Chair, Heath McMichael, told guests it was important for young people to develop an understanding of Asian cultures and languages in an increasingly Asia-centric world. Asia-literacy was a vital commodity for those contemplating carriers in commerce, overseas education and travel in Asia. To promote an awareness of Indonesian culture and language, BBI (ACT) organised activities for members and the general public, for example Indonesian film nights, book club events and study tours of Indonesia for teachers of Indonesian.

Heath said that BBI (ACT) was keen to see more school students learning Indonesian in the ACT. BBI (ACT) would continue to work with teachers, schools, the education authorities and the Indonesian Embassy to stimulate interest in taking up the Indonesian language.

BBI (ACT) Celebrates Indonesian Language Teaching in Canberra Schools

The achievements of primary and secondary school teachers of the Indonesian language were once again celebrated at a dinner hosted by Balai Bahasa Indonesia (ACT) at the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra on 4 November 2016. At least 10 ACT Schools were represented at the dinner which provided teachers and school principals the opportunity to exchange classroom experiences teaching Indonesian to students in Canberra. Specially invited guests included five Indonesian Language Teacher Assistants who give up time outside their own academic studies in Canberra tertiary institutions to teach in classrooms under their supervising teachers.

BBI (ACT) Chair, Heath McMichael, told guests the task of encouraging young people to take up and persevere with Indonesian language and culture studies is a challenging one, especially in the light of ingrained community indifference about Australia’s nearest Asian neighbour. Heath said that BBI (ACT) was willing to assist teachers, principals, and ACT education authorities promote the learning of Indonesian in order to maintain much-needed ballast in the people-to-people relationship between the two countries. BBI (ACT) is looking at practical and inventive ways to stimulate interest in Indonesian language learning, for instance in workshopping Indonesian curriculum materials with teachers and educators from schools in Canberra and Indonesia, organising teacher field trips to schools in eastern Indonesia and, hosting a YouTube Indonesian language competition.
