Skyping With Lombok School!

We were very lucky last week to be able to skype with a small village in Lombok which is in Indonesia.  Stephanie came to our school to help us skype with the village school.  She spent some time there as a volunteer teaching the children English.  She asked if our school would be interested in skyping with the village.  Ms. Tieppo and Mrs. Mosbauer were very excited and said yes.  Miss Y also helped us out on the day by giving us the Library space and her IWB.  A few children in our class asked some great questions. 

We learned so much!

Here are some things that we learned or noticed when we were skyping the school in Lombok:

  • They liked playing football.

  • They went to school on a Saturday.  They leave home at 7:00 am and go home at 1pm.

  • Not everyone gets to go to school.

  • There are 37 children in their class!

  • The boys sat on one side of the room and the girls sat on the other side.

  • There are 1000 children in the one school.

  • There are white walls and windows in there classroom.  There is no work up on the walls.

  • After school the children go home to do chores.

  • They have 3 lessons for the day and one 10 minute break.

  • They pray 5 times a day.

  • They have fun at school like us.There is only one library in the whole village .  It has one shelf of books.

  1. Hi 2TM,

    It was very exciting to skype the children in Lombok. Stephanie was very fluent and clear when she spoke Indonesian.
    It was amazing how much we learnt about their village and school. I was surprised to discover that the village only has one shelf of books for everyone. I looked around our beautiful library and saw hundreds of books. We are very fortunate to have all these books in our library.

  2. Dear Ms.Tieppo,

    It was really fun and exciting skyping to Lombok.
    My favorite part was when we got to listen to their Questions and asking our Questions.
