Cooking in Indonesian

Hi Parents and Guardians,
Next week in Indonesian we are going to be exploring different types of Indonesian food and cuisine. Children will be shown a number of different traditional Indonesian dishes. These will not be for tasting (as most of them are quite spicy) however, children will have an opportunity to look at and smell the different dishes.

As a class we will be cooking Javanese fried rice (vegetarian) to share and eat. I have included the recipe I will be using below to make them. For safety reasons I have asked each classroom teacher to forward on information about any children that they know of having any food allergies or intolerances.

If you have any questions or concerns please raise them with your child’s classroom teacher.
It should be a great and yummy lesson next week in Indonesian.

Tee Pees Reign Supreme!

To celebrate our Beacy Sports Day yesterday, we held our Teachers/Parents (Tee Pee’s) Vs Grade 6 Students football match. It was an extremely tight match with the game going into overtime but to the disappoint of the students, Mr Buckingham kicked the match winning goal for the Tee Pee’s. Thanks very much to everyone for organising and playing in the match, was a terrific way to end the term.
