Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,
Congratulations to the students and staff involved in the school production. The two performances were played in front of packed and appreciative audiences. This was a wonderful collaboration between many different parts of the school. Thank you very much to everyone who participated in, contributed to or supported Jaka Tarub. Check out the photos in the gallery on this website.
Next Friday we have the Continuum Arts Festival. This is a combination of the annual Visual Arts Festival, which cumulates with the Director’s Choice Award as well as Indonesia kaya, our performing arts festival in the evening. We look forward to your participation in this event.
Next weekend sees the school host nearly 600 teachers from schools all around Java (and Madura) in our annual School to School teacher’s conference. This has the theme, “Learner Agency.” Keynotes and workshops will be delivered by over 100 presenters, predominantly from Sekolah Ciputra. Thank you to the staff for giving so freely of their time to support this event.
The Coronavirus (Covid-19) is still dominating headlines around the world. As stated previously, the school is liaising closely with both the Ministries of Health and Education and has consistently maintained the need to remain calm yet alert. This has not changed.
Please also note that with the holiday period coming up, some families will travel to different places around the world. People need to be aware that the Government could place travel restrictions on certain countries which may impact upon your ability to return to Indonesia and back to school.
We are aware that as a community of two thousand people there are literally tens of thousands of interactions occurring on a daily basis between members of our school, their friends and extended families as well as random interactions in shopping malls and the like. We will continue to monitor the health of our staff and students. We will report any unusual phenomena to the Ministry of Health and we maintain our recommendation that if you or your children are sick you/they stay home until they are well. We also recommend that you stress the importance of basic levels of hygiene such as hand washing, and covering the nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing. In some cases the school will reserve the right to insist that a student or staff member receives a clear Covid-19 test before returning to school.
Finally, please note what I wrote in my last message. If and when our community is impacted, it could be from a wide variety of sources. Events like this have the capacity to test the mettle of a community. The onus is upon us to remain calm, supportive and positive in the face of a potential challenge.
