Each year the Department of Education and Communities coordinates the Kompetisi Siswa, a writing competition for students of Indonesian from Kindergarten to Year 10. Many teachers find this a great opportunity to raise the profile of Indonesian within their school community and for their students to experience competing with students in other schools at a state level.
Each Stage (Years 1-2, Years 3-4) etc is given a different topic and format for their task. Teachers are asked to coordinate their students’ work by selecting six entries per year group to be entered in the competition.
The closing date for entries is Friday 27 June 2014.
Prizes for first place, second place and highly commended are generously donated by the Australia-Indonesia Association of NSW. All students will receive a certificate of participation from the MLTA of NSW. Each participating school will receive a certificate of recognition from the Indonesian Consulate. See below for competition rules and entry forms.
