  • Coming 26th of October...

  • Literacy Month

    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.
