Lutheran World Federation education secretary Ridwin Purba and Gereha Kristen Protestan Simalungan (GKPS) school principal Jintan Saraghi spent the week at Navigator College to see how they could better understand the way students are taught and mirror management systems at the school.

Mr Purba said the visit was to observe and take practises back to Indonesia to use and better schools in the country.

“We will take what is useful back … this might mean a system of management of how to model a school,” he said.

“Things are really different in Indonesia.”

Mr Purba said he would also observe teaching practises and also the lutheran way of the school.

Navigator College principal Kaye Mathwin-Cox said the visit was a great opportunity for the school as well as enhance the partnership between the college and GKPS.

She said there was as much the college could learn from GKPS as their Indonesian counterparts could learn off them.

“When we went to Indonesia last year, it was their way of life to respect and honour their families,” she said.

“Everything is about the family bond.”

Mrs Mathwin-Cox said the 10 students that participated in the school’s trip to Indonesia last year came home with a different perspective that could be carried over to school life.

“With a new understanding, they found in Indonesia, because they have less then we have, they appreciate what they get.”

The school hosted a cultural experience on Tuesday night for students and parents, and an assembly yesterday also highlighted Indonesian culture with Mr Purba and Mr Saraghi conducting the morning chapel.
