Burgmann Anglican School Indonesian Language and Cultural Centre

The Institute has assisted the expansion of Indonesian studies at Burgmann Anglican School in Canberra through support for the construction of a dedicated Indonesian Language and Cultural Centre at the school.

Built in a modern Torajan style, the facility provides a focus for the school’s formal Indonesian studies program and for extra-curricular educational activities for members of the school community, including assisting other schools. These activities include instruction in the art of gamelan playing. With the commissioning of this centre, Burgmann School will expand its Indonesian studies program through connection with a sister school in Bandung.
