Coronavirus can’t keep Balinese kindergarteners from celebrating their graduation!
Under strict hygiene standards, students were invited back to the Bali Children’s Project Kindergarten in Ubud to celebrate their achievement.
28 students were split into smaller groups of 3-5 students each. They were greeted by their dedicated teachers, who handed over their graduation certificates.
It’s the first educational achievement in their life, and of huge developmental importance. Not only does it set the tone of the importance of education and achievement, Kindergarten is a time when young learners pick up skills they will use all of their life.
All students and parents wore masks and washed their hands with soap on entry and on exit, while teachers had face shields and masks.
Kindegartens in Bali
In Bali, many kindergartens struggle with a lack of quality buildings, supplies and support for teachers.
Bali Children’s Project works with villages to help improve their kindergartens through renovations, supplies provision and teacher training.
It’s a program that has already helped thousands of young learners receive a better early stage education – and one that will reach thousands more over the years.
By providing a better standard of play based learning, children can head into primary school equipped with skills that will mould their lives.
Graduations All Around
It wasn’t just graduation time at the Bali Children’s Project Kindergarten. Over the years, our support has helped over 30 schools and teachers to improve – and they all have children graduating.
This year, counting all of the schools supported by Bali Children’s Project, over 1,000 students are going into elementary school having received a great kindergarten education.
Bali Children’s Project is currently seeking support for our next Community Donor project at the Banana School. We’ll be combining donations to help reach our target to renovate the school.
All donors – no matter how large or small – will have their names painted within the mural.
So far in 2020, Bali Children’s Project has renovated and supplied five schools, with more on the way. The schools are;
The Jean Solomon Kindergarten
The Noah Simmons School
The EnviTours School of Early Learning
The Amir Zekiri School
Sentana Donor Community School
