Global Jaya Day 1



Hello to everyone back at St Leonard's College. I have arrived! I spent the long plane journey ocuupying myself with the usual things you do on a plane: eating, watching video, eating sleeping, eating! Managed to have a reflexology foot massage in Singapaore between flight, which certaily rejuvinated me. Well my feet at least! From the moments I stepped off the plane my time here in Indonesia has been go, go, go! Was met By Ibu Mida at the airport and taken to a wonderful chinese restaurant for some scrumptious authentic chinese cuisine: quail's eggs, salted fish & beef and tofu. Yum Yum. Arrived at my host family and promptly collapsed into bed around 10pm Indonesian which is 1am Aus. We are three hours beind here. On sunday I took a Ojek ride (a motorbike taxi) to a local market. this was quite an experience. Mnay of the Indonesian drivers wear bare feet and there's no helmets to be seen. I loved it! There was so much to see and I got to peek down all the little alley ways and watch people going about their daily routines. We wandered around the food market which sold an array of fresh food products, some of them extremely fresh and in the process of being killed. It was a wonderful experience.
for luch I was taken to a traditional Indonesian restaurant which was exquisite in both it's food rpoductiona dn presentation and also the ambience of the place. The menus were little carved wooden doors that opened to reveal the course available. After lunch we wne t to a larger department store that sold Indonesian atifacts and I've bought a few treats for the Junior school.
Like StLeondard's, Global Jay is an impressive school. It has a very tropical feel to it: very colourful; lots of open areas and wonderful aromas coming form the state of the art caffeteria. School starts here at 7:30 and finishes at 4 so it's a long day for the children. We started today with a flag raising ceremony, 'Upacara' , which is done every fortnight.
Will be spending my time today in various classrooms watching th Indonesian teachers. The children and staff are preparing themselves for Student Led Conferences on Thursday. Stay tuned for more news from Global Jaya. Over and out!

Hi Jane,

Wow, what a great experience! All those Asian smells and little lanes. You will be briming over with news when you get back.

The school sounds sophisicated and interesting.

Dear Mrs. Lukaitis
I hope you are having a grerat time in Indonesia and I think that every student is missing you. Is the school that you are teaching very different to St.Lednard's college? Is it harder teaching the students at the other school?

Hi Mrs Lukaitis,
We all enjoyed reading about what you are doing in Jakarta.
When we were outside this morning we played football, built a fire engine out of blocks,dressed up and danced to some music.

What do the children at SGJ do when they go outside to play?

What is the weather like?

Hi Jane,
Hope you have had another interesting day! How did your presentation go? Is your tapping a success internationally!!!? Am missing you here but am pleased to say Nina is enjoying your class a lot and has shared a fabulous book aobut dates in history which the children are loving! We are cruisng along, trying to keep relaxed adn finsh the week in one piece!
Just wondering...
What is surprising you most about your experience? Are there any great ideas you can bring back to us for next term? Do you feel like you could actually pick up teaching in your new environment or are there too many significant differences?
I don't expect written answers, you have a lot of bolg messages to read!
Take care and take it all in!
Love Amanda

Hi Mrs L,
How is school there? Toby and Lewis say hi. I say hi too. You should do a venn diagram on Indonesia and Austalia. My guess is that by the end of the week, you will be the most popular teacher in the school! I think you deserve to be so popular. We all miss you so much! At school we learnt a new game called Elevenses and we have to play it! I am not very good but it is fun all the same. Today when we played it Will Jordan and Jason were ganging up and when Jordan went out we all cheered and he blushed and demanded for Will and Jason to go out! It was hilarious. Bye for now, From Nat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
