Today Permata Bangsa along with all other schools in Semarang joined the National Literacy Programme. Students were allowed to read any fiction or non-fiction book of their choosing. Textbooks and especially handphones were not allowed.
Some students were lucky enough to be able to relax outside with their books under the shady tree.
It was certainly very quiet and peaceful at the Permata Bangsa for that hour and many students have shown interest in this activity to become more regular.
Permata Bangsa also has reading time during the "Exercise Break" in the library each day and we have a collection of over 4,000 books. Our library is currently being put online so students will be able to also reserve books and be notified when they are returned.
Please be sure to stop by and visit the PBS team currently exhibiting in the Citraland Mall accross from Gelial Supermarket entrance.
The expo is from Wednesday the 5th to Sunday the 9th. So far lot's of interest for 2019/2020 enrolments.
Our pre-schoolers visited the Superindo supermarket to learn about the items that are available there including fresh foods and household items. They even had the change to purchase some healthy snacks for themselves. All Permata Bangsa School pre-schoolers were very well behaved and were given a big thank you from the Superindo staff.
