On 31 May 2018, ACS Jakarta held its annual Honours Day for the Primary School, organized by the Primary school PE Department. The theme for the ceremony was “Committed to Excellence” and the verse chosen to encourage our student leaders was “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men” taken from Colossians 3:23.
The theme and verse was chosen as we wanted to acknowledge the effort and work our students have displayed in the various areas of their school life, and we hope that these students will continue to grow and learn, and develop good character and values that will build their foundation and help them achieve excellence in their future. Our Guest of Honour, Rizky Pulungan, shared about her personal journey of excellence when she was a student in ACS Jakarta, and she encouraged our students to also embark on their own journeys to improve and grow. The Dance Crew and the Ballet CCA ballerinas also wowed us with lovely performances which showed their talent and skill, obviously honed after many hours of training and practice. The Champion House Award presentation was also held to the delight of everyone there. One highlight for the ceremony was the specially prepared Photo Booth which was a hit with all the parents and students! After the ceremony, many queued to take lovely pictures and they left with wonderful memories of this proud moment.Ms
