Service Learning to SDN Pasir Ranji
On May 24, 2017 grade 3 students from SDH Cikarang went to SDN Pasir Ranji to do their Service Learning. We chose to go there because the principal agreed to accept us, and back then in 2013 we ever go there. Moreover, since both the teachers and students are Moslems, it’s a good opportunity for our students to play with them so that they will know that not all Moslems people are rude and radical (since there were many political news between Christians and Moslems).
Over there, Mr. Filemon and the SDN principal exchanged greetings as representatives of SDH Cikarang and SDN Pasir Ranji. We gathered in their soccer field (a wide area with wild grasses) and Mr. Ganda gave a briefing about the games. We did 2 games: Baloon and Tarik Tambang. The most exciting one is the Tarik Tambang competition because both our students and their students were having so much fun playing together! (Even though some of them were sad because they lost, but even some parents and driver were joining the students to do the competition) After that, students from Pasir Ranji guide our students to their classes to read books and chat. Before we went back to school, we gave them some souvenirs: bags filled with stationery, snacks, and cards. Then, we went back to school with tired bodies but happy hearts!
This Service Learning activity is supporting one of SDH vision: having a Godly character and mission: proclaiming the pre-eminence of Christ and engaging in the redemptive restoration of all things in Him through holistic education. We believe that it will also help them to develop respectful relationships with all people (including Moslem people) as God’s image bearers, because we appreciate different personalities, communities, cultures and religions in Indonesia. It also goes in sync with our graduate profile number 2 and 16.
