Happy Holidays from a blue ms Nieuw Jakarta! Santa made an early start this holiday season and we celebrated the holiday season with an end of year Christmas and New Year’s party for students and staff. The party theme was blue and white and snow, snow and snow. Special guest visitor from HAL headquarters in Seattle, Deputy Director of Human Resources Jason Pedersen, who was visiting Sumber Bakat Insani and ms Nieuw Jakarta to discuss human resource issues and the clerk programs, joined in the party festivities and with management and teaching staff to help serve over 170 students at a formal dinner with an appetizer, main course, dessert and beverages. Students also got the chance to attend a pre- and post-dinner cocktail party with specialty cocktails. After dinner the party kicked off as each class performed in a singing competition with holiday favorites such as “Feliz Navidad,” “Have a Very Merry Christmas,” and the crowd winner “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer” danced “Gangnam Style” by the class. Bingo, door prizes and a DJ also kept everyone entertained.

Robert “Nick” Nichols, Nieuw Jakarta’s academic director, sent us the following note and photos from the center’s recent Fourth of July celebration. Nieuw Jakarta is HAL’s crew training center in Jakarta, Indonesia.

A red, white and blue Fourth of July party was hosted by the ms Nieuw Jakarta’s crew committee with a country and western theme. Management, local staff, students and crew celebrated America’s Independence Day with traditional games of tug of war, sack race, balloon toss, sports competitions of soccer, basketball and ping pong and enjoyed a real American barbecue of hot dogs, hamburgers, steak and corn on the cob – a big hit. For the first time ever a Forth of July t-shirt design contest was held with the winning design printed on t-shirts and given to students to wear that day. Students also performed in a crew show about America and each class strutted their best country western dance styles in a country and western dance contest.

As part of cross-cultural awareness, puzzles and quizzes about the United States and how Americans celebrate the holiday were given to students during the week leading up to the event and students were introduced to why Americans celebrate and the importance of Independence Day. The event was topped off by students and staff singing ‘God Bless America’ and a grand fireworks display, a first at ms Nieuw Jakarta.
