In 2014, 18 students from Mandurah Baptist College travelled to Yogyakarta on an ACICIS Indonesia School Tour. The trip was a great experience for the students.

Mr Tavish Redgrave, the Indonesian teacher at the college was very happy with the tour that was provided:

The tour provided an opportunity where students could fall in love with Indonesia. It has played an important role in the strategy I have developed at my school for developing the Indonesian program. It proved a good drawcard for increasing class numbers in the post compulsory language years.

At the end of the program, students were asked to fill out a survey with feedback about their trip in Indonesia. Here are some comments the students said:

The Indonesian tour was an enjoyable, memorable experience, which helped me learn about culture, language, and made loads of friends and met friendly people.

I loved every single second, thank you so much for am amazing experience.

My experience in Indonesia was amazing! I did so many things that I wouldn’t be able to do in Australia, and I met so many new people.

Learning about Indonesia has never been so much fun.
