BIS Students Voting in Mock Election
On Monday, November 2nd, BIS students and staff/faculty will be able to participate, virtually, in a mock election for President of the United States. Building on our BIS mock election for Indonesia’s elections last year, this is another impactful worldwide event that has reverberating ramifications. Even though it is a world away, it is an important and influential event that does draw global interest.
Students in grades 5 through 12 can use their awareness and prior knowledge of the candidates/situation and then supplement that with voter guides/biographies supplied by the Library to produce an informed vote.
An educational and fun exercise, students will submit their ballots via Google Forms throughout the day on Monday, with the deadline being Monday night at 11:59 pm (ballots will be emailed Monday). On Tuesday, November 3rd, we will announce the results and then eventually compare the BIS community preferences with the actual results.
Finally, starting at 8:00 am on the morning of Wednesday, November 4th, I will conduct a live stream commentary as the election results come in. This event will be a mix of analysis, explanation, predictions, teaching and fun; we hope to also have some special guests as well. Please feel free to tune in at anytime here:
This is specifically an all-age event and all students and parents are invited to join. People can participate via comments or questions via my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via our Instagram and Twitter accounts at @baliislibrary.

Jamu Making in Grade 4
Grade 4 in Indonesian Studies class are learning Indonesia’s traditional method of staying healthy. They learn that jamu, a traditional herbal drink, has been one of the methods that many Indonesians use until now.
There are a lot of types of jamu, and one of them is turmeric jamu or jamu kunyit. On Wednesday 28 October, Grade 4 in Indonesian Studies class was given a task to make their own home-made turmeric jamu.
They watched the video tutorial since the week before and noted all the ingredients and tools needed. They learned the steps by steps of making it and finally experienced the process of making jamu.
Here are some pictures of the activity sent by the students.
Some students even made their own version of jamu which is based on their family recipes and it is so impressive.
