It has been a busy and exciting few weeks for Indonesian students at Vincentia High School. Year 10 students, Sarah Kenny and Tiffany Reilly, placed 1st and 3rd respectively in the NSW Indonesian Writing Competition, Kompetisi Siswa. Year 11 student, Jay Edwards was awarded the prestigious title of Australian Indonesian Student of the Year and travelled to Deakin University in Melbourne to attend the Presentation Ceremony.
Last week the school received a visit from the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) group, accompanied by ABC International, which has become known as one of the best days ever at VHS. All students studying Indonesian in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 attended a cultural performance by the group, which was both fun and interesting. We then hosted a lunch for all participants with an Indonesian feast. A huge thanks to the Year 10 Hospitality students who helped with the lunch. The theme of the day as Menemukan Teman-Teman Baru and this was well received by all, as many new friendships were made and Facebook details exchanged. This is the first time that Indonesian students have visited Vincentia High School and after the success of the visit, will certainlly not be the last.

A group of 18 young Indonesians – potential future leaders of Indonesia – will visit NSW from mid October to mid December 2013 to experience Australia’s culture and way of life.
They’ll spend three weeks in homestays, work placements and a range of cultural performance activities (in both Sydney and Kiama) as part of the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP).
Sponsored by the Australia-Indonesia Institute in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, with the support of AusAID, the exchange is run in conjunction with the Indonesian Government’s State Ministry of Youth and Sports.
You can involve your school in this wonderful opportunity to connect with the group of young Indonesian participants by considering homestays, work placements and/or offering your school as a venue for a FREE cultural performance.
