Dear Parents and Friends,
The Geckos started this week with a visit to Bamboo Village. One of our classmates, Nina, and her mother, Ibu Tatiana, invited us to their gorgeous house which was so kind of them. We spent almost two hours in Nina’s house playing and having yummy snacks together. Thank you for inviting us to your bamboo palace and thank you to Ibu Puspa for the popcorn and watermelon.
Don’t you know that we have so much energy??
After visiting Bamboo Village, the Geckos immediately went to have more fun times with our lovely Ibu Cherry. The students had so much fun doing yoga as they were playing “Dragon Hunt”. They were also practising some poses, such as frog, downward facing dog, snake, bridge, mountain, and tree. The Geckos also tried partner yoga!

Lower School Learning Showcase
What an amazing day! We loved seeing all the proud and smiling faces of the parents as they witnessed their children’s hard work. The Early Years and Primary students did an awesome job. Thank you so much for your support and for participating.
This week was the last music class of the semester. Thank you Ibu Jamie and Pak Aris for teaching us. We love having lessons with both of you. See you next term.
Can you guess who was our P.W. teacher this week?
Do you know how to open a rambutan??
This week cooking class was really fun and had a little challenge for the Geckos as they learned how to open a rambutan by themselves. First some of them said, “I can’t do it” but still tried. The children were very proud when they learned how to do it.
Would you like to try our “es rambutan” (iced rambutan)?? They really enjoyed the steps of how to make this drink: scooping the rambutan, squeezing the lime, adding some ice, sprinkling the salt and a little bit of honey. You can see their faces when they tried this drink.
Happy 4th Birthday Jokubas!
The Geckos happily sang Happy Birthday to Jokubas aa he proudly showed his crown made by the teachers. We celebrated Jokubas’ birthday during snack time on Friday. His Mom and Dad came and shared cupcakes with us. Happy happiest Birthday Jokubas. Hip… hip… hip…hip hurray. Thank you for sharing your yummy cupcakes and for being born.
Teman-teman with Grade 1 Merah
Thank you Grade 1 Merah for inviting the Geckos to your class. We had a great time with all of you and are really happy to be your Teman-teman for this term. Since this week was our last session of our Teman-teman, see you next time.
Christmas is getting closer!! The Geckos created their own Christmas ornaments (wreaths) to hang on our Christmas tree. They were cutting and decorating their wreaths. We are super excited for the holidays.
Continuing our Thematic Learning, the Geckos explored the story of “The Three Little Pigs” and built their houses by using the blocks. What fun!
