KIDS GATHERING 2008
Once a year we gathered all KIDS families and children together for a fun outing. This year, the party was held on Sunday, 29th June, at Kertalangu Cultural village in Tohpati, Denpasar. Thirty families attended and enjoyed some fun activities organized by the KIDS team and volunteers from Courts Indonesia. YKIP and COURTS Indonesia have been working together for five years through the KIDS program.
All families and children really enjoyed walking on the jogging track at Kertalangu venue. Having time to see the rice fields and to breathe the fresh air in the morning, made them feel so relaxed. A Small quiz conducted during this activity to see how much they knew about the KIDS program.
The children made candles together as well as played “catch the duck”. These activities helped the children interact with one another and increase their creative instincts. One activity that always happens at every Gathering Party is the children’s birthday party. This year, about 80 children who were born between January and December celebrated their birthday. We sang birthday’ songs and gave them each a T-shirt as birthday gift.
As the KIDS gathering party was held just before the new academic year started, we distributed some school supplies for all of the students such as: shoes and socks, school bag, belt, and stationary.
