To make batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color.

This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colorful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing or showing.

Batik is historically the most expressive and subtle of the resist methods. The ever widening range of techniques available offers the artist the opportunity to explore a unique process in a flexible and exciting way.

One of UNESCO’s fundamental missions is to support people in understanding each other to be able to work together harmoniously and build lasting peace. They have been promoting one of their programmes ‘Learning to Live Together’ for years. Tzu Chi Early Childhood represented by K1 Grateful and K2 Kindness took part in creating harmony among other members of the community. Last October 28, 2019 in line with Youth Pledge Day, the school held some activities that aim to introduce students to different culture and religion, share their experiences and establish a good relationship with students from TK Stella Maris (Catholic), TK Pelangi Kasih (Christian), and TK Q Nurul Islam (Moslem). At the end, both students and parents have learned the importance of living harmoniously with others. We are hoping to reach out more to other communities and be able to develop a good relationship with others despite the differences in culture, religion, language and others.

Our school’s foundation, the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation Indonesia plays a big role in helping to build the infrastructure at Kamal Muara village, Penjaringan district, North Jakarta. At the beginning of this Academic Year, on July 9, 2019, about 300 Tzu Chi School teachers and staff put their hands together to demolish ten decrepit houses in this fishing village, to be rebuilt by Tzu Chi Foundation. The ten houses were chosen as recommended by the neighbourhood unit heads (RT) and mostly belong to the elderly or lone widows. After almost four months of work, some of the new houses were done. Together with Mr Sudino Lim, Tzu Chi School Director, 5 teachers from Early Childhood School, 5 teachers from Primary School, and 6 teachers from Secondary School with 17 students from Grades 11 and 12 joined this wonderful event.
