It’s Monday again and what a fun weekend we had catching up with friends, going to the zoo, getting spontaneous tattoos, celebrating the birthday of a super lovely friend and hanging out at AIS Family Fun Day. After a lovely early afternoon eating cakes and hanging out with good friends, we packed the car full of kids and set off on the short journey to AIS.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Australian School in Jakarta and the school grounds in Kemang were full of people celebrating and hanging out together. After the massive storm and flooding the night before, I wasn’t sure it would still go ahead, but as usual, the sun came out and dried the ground and it ended up being a perfect afternoon chilling out.
The outdoor corridor was lined with stalls selling gorgeous homewares, kids books and knick knacks, delicious food, kids activities and more. Due to the crowds I didn’t get the chance to look all around the school or even visit the play equipment, but instead we parked ourselves on a nice part of the grass area and enjoyed a few glass of wine and snacks while watching all the super talented kids performing up on stage. A little slice of Australia in Jakarta, having a picnic on the lawn, is such a rare treat and such a beautiful way to spend the day.
It was lovely to see so many familiar faces and I’m so glad we stayed until the end this year to watch the fireworks! Samudra loved it!
I’m already looking forward to going again next year!
Happy 20th Anniversary AIS.
