It was a decidedly Indonesian day

INDONESIA was the flavour of the day at Echuca College recently.

More than 700 students from the Echuca region converged on the school for its annual immersion day.

The event, which has been running since 2015, is all about showcasing one of Australia’s closest neighbours — and its culture — to local students. It all kicked off with a performance from incursion provider Bagus Kan, and continued with workshops, including mask making, puppet making, traditional dance, gamelan, Indonesian martial arts and village games.

There were also conversation classes with a native Indonesian speaker for senior students.

Organiser Courtney Umbers said the event was funded with a government school’s grant.
