73rd Indonesia Independence Day Celebration
Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! (Literary means Freedom)
This is the exact same word which always is shouted and heard all over the places in Indonesia when it comes the day to celebrate Indonesia’s Independence Day.
As good citizens of Indonesia, SDH Lippo Village students always participate in thanksgiving of the Independence Day and celebrate it in many ways each year. This year, the celebration started with great parade on August 16, 2018 with other schools under YPPH, and also with companies under Lippo Group. SDH Lippo Village was assigned to represent the Central Java. So, the SDH LV team prepared a Javanese special chariot complete with several ‘wayang’ figures acted out by teachers.
On August 21, 2018, our school tried to re-introduce some traditional games that might be forgot by young generation. In this occasion, the students were challenged to play games which were full of nationality theme and encouraged teamwork.
From these activities, the students are expected to hold the real meaning of the Independence Day and the value of Indonesian heroes’ sacrifices for this country. We hope that the students can be more responsible with their lives and strive to be the best for the bright future of Indonesia.
