OFF TO INDONESIA: Warren Frew, Kate Fardell, Rebecca Matthews and Rob Exner.Three teachers from St John’s College will make a flying visit to Indonesia later this month to forge a sister school relationship on the island of Java.
Religious education co-ordinator Robert Exner, student representative council co-ordinator Kate Fardell and society and culture teacher Rebecca Matthews are scheduled to depart on July 21 and return to Dubbo on July 25.
They will visit 2KS senior high school at Cilegon. The Muslim school’s principal visited St John’s College on May 12 following ground work completed by professor of engineering Nick Standish who lives six months of the year in Dubbo and the remainder in Indonesia.
The Indonesian visit has been funded through a language grant from the Catholic Education Office.
“Staff and students are excited about broadening their horizons, promoting Dubbo and learning more about another culture,’’ St John’s principal Warren Frew said.
“A communal website will be established to allow students to speak with each other and share facilities.
“Our Indonesian friends hope English skills will be improved and they are keen to learn more about our teaching techniques.
“We aim to obtain additional funding to train a teacher so that Indonesian can be offered as a subject at St John’s.’’
