As most IICS students will continue their studies abroad, there they will interact considerably with people from different cultural background. It is better that they have adequate understanding of the history and cultures of our country.
To understand the traditional cultures in Indonesia, one of which was that of the Yogyakarta people, Year 10 students of IPEKA International Christian School took a field trip to Special Region of Yogyakarta (DIY). The field trip also provided them with background knowledge for the Indonesian Background Speakers Course in Years 11 and 12, which require the students to have sufficient socio-cultural understanding.
The students visited several places there such as Rumah Budaya Tembi (Tembi Cultural House), Malioboro, Borobudur Temple, and, of course, the city center of Yogyakarta. They practiced several cultural activities such as making batik, karawitan, Javanese dances, and cooking Javanese foods.
