VISITING YOUR SPONSOR CHILD

 


You are definitely encouraged to visit your sponsor child during your trip to Bali.


Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it via email to organize a visit.


For ease of co-ordination, we request that you give Agung two weeks notice of your intent to visit your sponsor child. There are many visitors and sponsor children but there is only one Agung!! Agung will organize your visit with the school. Should your requested day fall on a holiday or time when the kids are not at the school, advance notice will mean Agung can advise you of this and arrange an alternative visit.

When arriving at your child's school, you will be greeted by Agung and staff of the school, including the Principal if available.
If all the students are at school – WOW – what an experience it will be for you. You will be greeted by a group of enthusiastic and very happy children.

You can sit and interact with your child. Some will have a basic to good grasp on English which makes communications easier. There are always people around to help translate if you struggle. As an "ice-breaker" take along a sports ball of some sort – you can teach them to kick a footy, play four square….there are numerous possibilities and all are very welcomed.


They can take you around and show you their school. A staff of the school will generally help with this as well.


Many people ask if they can take gifts for their child. You certainly can, though please choose responsibly.


Lollies are a big no-no. Bali water does not have fluoride in it to protect their teeth – lollies cause more problems than enjoyment!


Suggestions of gifts:
Whiteboard markers
Colouring books and pencils
Word Sleuths
Picture books
Sports Equipment – football, tennis ball, Frisbee, soccer ball, etc.
Good quality second hand clothes – or buy from a local market to support their community.
Rice for their family
Lego games
Puzzles
Caps or T-shirts with Aussie logos



DIRECTIONS TO SCHOOLS

Heading out from Denpasar towards Bedugul, after Mengwi and just before the Coca Cola factory there is a small market on your right, SOBANGAN MARKET. It is well known to all the drivers. It has a very big tree that you cannot miss (a Banyan tree, I believe)

Turn right under the tree and drive about 1 km. SD 2 Sobangan school is high on the left hand side.

Don't follow the main road around to the right, but drive straight on down. Turn left then right till you see SD 1 Sobangan school on your right. Drive another 2 km (with a couple of turns - 2 left and 3 right) and you are at SD 3 Sobangan on your right. If your driver asks any of the local people where SD 3 Sobangan School is, they will soon direct him.

Instead of turning right at Sobangan Markets, if you carry on up the main road, past Coca Cola on your left and carry on about 2 kms and turn right. Carry on about another kilometer or so to the main village area. Turn left for SD 3 Kuwum or right for SD 2 Sembung. Once again, if your driver asks the locals for SD 3 or 2 they will soon direct him easily.

Mekarsari schools are about 5 kms up to north from Sembung
