Sukawati, Dutch Students in Exchange Program
GIANYAR ~ After achieving strong results in information technology, SMAN 1 Sukawati is preparing 24 students to go to The Netherlands on an exchange program with a school in Utrecht.
â€œIn September, 24 students from UNIP school in Utrecht will come to SMAN 1 Sukawati. They will be accompanied by three teachers and will study Balinese culture, taking part in playing gamelan, dancing and painting. They will also visit tourist attractions with students from Sukawati,â€ the principal of SMAN 1 Sukawati, Dr. I Nyoman Sudana, said on Tuesday.
The Dutch students will stay with students from Sukawati in their homes to increase communication between the two groups.
â€œAfter the Dutch studentsâ€™ two-week visit, it will be the turn of the students from Sukawati to go to The Netherlands, in November,â€ program facilitator and English teacher at SMAN 1 Putu Indra Prasetya said.
Sudana said the program was partly a result of students being enthusiastic and using the multimedia facilities at the school to communicate with students around the world.Filed under: The Island
