Story Term 4 

Kemarin kancil berjalan di sungai.  Kancil lihat manga di sebelah sungai.

Kancil lapar dan mau makan manga.  Kancil tidak bias berenang.

Kancil lihat banyak buaya di sungai.  Ada banyak buaya lapar di sungai. Kancil bias apa?

Kancil berkata ‘Halo buaya.  Berapa ekor buaya di sungai?’

Buaya berkata ‘Tidak tau’. Kancil berkata ‘Saya mau hitung.  Ayo buaya antri.’ Buaya antri.

Kancil melompat dari buaya ke buaya.  Kancil berkata ‘Ayo hitung 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.’

Kancil samapi di sebelah.  Kancil berlari dan tertawa.  Buaya marah sekali.

Kancil senang sekali makan manga.  Kancil terlalu pandai!

Indonesian Sister School visit

In week 9, term 3 we had our sister school, Sekolah Petra Berkat visit us from Bali, Indonesia.  The visitors were hosted by the three schools of Goolwa, Port Elliot and Victor R-7.  Students got to participate in a range of cultural activities including dance, cooking and mask making.

A big thank you to our wonderful host families at Victor Harbor R-7, the Nobbs family and the Tymko family, who helped to make the visit such a huge success.

A big thank you to Urimbirra also, for their support of the Indonesian program across the Fleurieu and for always making our Indonesian visitors feel welcome.
