Sekolah Bina Persada, a school in Bandung, had their two-day fieldtrip in Jakarta on March 22-23 and visiting Tzu Chi Primary School was in their itinerary as the culminating part of their trip. The SBP Primary 5 students and teachers were warmly welcomed by the teachers and students of Tzu Chi Primary School as they entered the hall. A simple program was organized where the students from each school had the chance to showcase their talents, play and socialize with one another, and most importantly, to build new friendships.
SBP students and teachers also had the opportunity to experience a tea ceremony class led by the Ren Wen Team and some volunteers. They were able to observe and engage in the different routines of the tea ceremony class. After the class, they visited some of the sites in Jing Si Hall building. They were astonished by the structural size and designs. When all the activities were done, an appetizing vegetarian lunch was served to the visitors. It was also a memorable experience for the SBP students when they washed their eating utensils.
SBP students and teachers were delighted during their visit. They went home with the useful experiences they had learned in Tzu Chi Primary School.
