After this week my work in the primary school of Ibu Agung started. At my first day I was a bit nervous but when I arrived at school, I was friendly welcomed and all pupils were so nice and happy that I stayed at their school for a few weeks. Also the teachers welcomed me very friendly at their school and also in the teachers room. I always taught the third Grade in English and also the fifth and sixth Grade. The pupils were always very motivated but sometimes we had some difficulty with our language because their English were not so advanced, but the kids in the primary school are very young and they begin to learn English there but mostly it worked and we understood each other.
Sometimes there were special school days like the competition day, where the pupils competed against each other in the discipline of running, sack race and running with a bottle of water on their head or the cleaning day. There the pupils cleaned and tidied up the whole school. Every class room, the teachers room, the working center and also the schoolyard were got out of the rubbish which I could find all over the schoolyard because the Balinese people have not really a relevance to the rubbish and to the waste disposal. After this day the school looked so good and cleaned.
On Friday they had a temple ceremony in the morning which I was allowed to join. At this morning I met Ibu Agung at her house to wear the traditional clothes for the temple. We went there together and I joined the whole ceremony where the teachers and pupils prayed together. It was amazing for me to see how disciplined the kids are in the temple and also to be part of this community.
