Merdeka! On the 18th of August 2014, the school held an Independence Day celebration. The whole school participated in the events hosted by the newly inaugurated Student Council. First thing in the morning, we had a flag hoisting ceremony (Upacara Bendera). The ceremony was started off by the MC, and continued with the performance of the Paskibra (The Y9 students) trained by Mr. Slamet and others. The ceremony progressed smoothly, as the whole school paid respect to our fallen heroes, and the hoisted national flag waving its red and white colors in the air.
After the flag hoisting ceremony, the fun events finally took place. The primary and the secondary students were divided to play separate games. The games we played were:
-. Lomba makan kerupuk
-. Balap kelereng
-. Lompat karung
-. Lomba memasukan paku ke dalam botol
-. Cabut koin
-. Tarik tambang (tug of war)
Everyone enthusiastically cheered for their teams and had lots of fun on this commemorative day. At the end of the day, everyone went home tired but with happy smiles on their faces. Dirgahayu Indonesia!
