On Sunday, October 2, 2022, National Batik Day was commemorated in Indonesia. Why was October 2 chosen? Because on October 2, 2009, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated batik as Indonesia’s cultural heritage.
Damar Bali School, a newly established school in the Jimbaran area of Bali, was no exception and organized a Halloween party on October 28, 2022. The costume party, which began at three in the afternoon, successfully captured the interest of children. More than 100 children attended, including both students of Damar Bali School and those from outside the school.
National Teacher’s Day was established by President Soeharto on November 25, 1994, through Presidential Decree Number 78 of 1994 regarding National Teacher’s Day. One of the initiatives by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology for the 77th National Teacher’s Day is to recognize and appreciate inspirational teachers and educational staff.
At our young age, we, Damar Bali School, feel immensely proud to have had the opportunity to participate in the 13th Anniversary celebration of the Badung Regency’s Capital, Mangupura. The event took place at the Puspem Badung Field in Mengwi, Bali.
