Who here celebrates a special holiday in December? Many people look forward to December because there are many holidays and celebrations. Begawan Learning Centre held a series of holiday programs that coincided with the students’ school holidays. The series was filled with various activities to increase knowledge and life skills. The program included gardening, first aid training, health and nutritional status checks, Mother’s Day performances, yoga, obstacle courses, and camping.

On December 23, 2021, students at Begawan practiced yoga with an instructor named Segara. Thirty-seven students participated, and  were taught simple yoga movements. Some of the movements taught resembled animal movements, such as the butterfly pose, downward dog pose, cow pose, camel pose, snake pose, and bird pose, that students can easily remember and follow. They not only focused on movement, but they were also instructed  to focus on breathing and be sensitive to the condition of their bodies.At the end of the yoga session, students were instructed in the corpse pose (savasana) in which the body is placed in a lying position, and they remained in this position for a few minutes, relaxing in silence.

The next day, December 24, 2021, was the closing day of the Holiday Program. Students played obstacle games which included jumping, running, crawling, walking on one leg, and working together to devise strategies to win the game. This obstacle course was very challenging for students. Wet from splashed water, dirty from crawling on the ground, they did not see any barriers. When students had successfully overcome all obstacles, they erected tent equipment to camp together at the Learning Centre. Students worked together to assemble the frame so that the tent could stand and be ready for use. Camping is not complete without eating together and chatting. In a relaxed atmosphere they ate cakes, sushi, and drank tea together.

That was the end of the vacation program at Begawan Learning Centre. After this holiday program, students will take a short break and continue activities at the Learning Centre in the new year, January 2022. See you soon!

Siapa di sini yang merayakan hari libu di bulan Desember? Banyak orang menantikan bulan Desember karena ada banyak hari libur dan perayaan. Pusat Belajar Begawan menggelar rangkaian program liburan yang bertepatan dengan liburan sekolah para siswa. Rangkaian acara diisi dengan berbagai kegiatan untuk menambah pengetahuan dan kecakapan. Program tersebut meliputi berkebun, pelatihan pertolongan pertama, pemeriksaan kesehatan dan status gizi, pertunjukan Hari Ibu, yoga, rintangan, dan berkemah.

Pada 23 Desember 2021, para siswa di Begawan berlatih yoga dengan seorang instruktur bernama Segara. Tiga puluh tujuh siswa berpartisipasi, dan diajari gerakan yoga sederhana. Beberapa gerakan yang diajarkan menyerupai gerakan hewan, seperti pose kupu-kupu, pose anjing, pose sapi, pose unta, pose ular, dan pose burung, yang mudah diingat dan diikuti siswa. Mereka tidak hanya fokus pada gerakan, tetapi mereka juga diinstruksikan untuk fokus pada pernapasan dan peka terhadap kondisi tubuh mereka. Di akhir sesi yoga, siswa diinstruksikan dalam pose berbaring (savasana) di mana tubuh ditempatkan. dalam posisi berbaring, dan mereka tetap dalam posisi ini selama beberapa menit, bersantai dalam keheningan.

Keesokan harinya, 24 Desember 2021, merupakan hari penutupan Holiday Program. Siswa memainkan permainan rintangan yang meliputi melompat, berlari, merangkak, berjalan dengan satu kaki, dan bekerja sama untuk menyusun strategi untuk memenangkan permainan. Rintangan ini sangat menantang bagi siswa. Basah karena percikan air, kotor karena merangkak di tanah, mereka tidak melihat penghalang apa pun. Ketika para siswa telah berhasil mengatasi semua rintangan, mereka mendirikan peralatan tenda untuk berkemah bersama di Pusat Belajar. Siswa bekerja sama untuk merakit rangka agar tenda dapat berdiri dan siap digunakan. Berkemah tidak lengkap tanpa makan bersama dan mengobrol. Dalam suasana santai mereka makan kue, sushi, dan minum teh bersama.

Begitulah akhir dari program liburan di Pusat Belajar Begawan. Setelah program liburan ini, siswa akan beristirahat sejenak dan akan melanjutkan kegiatan di Pusat Belajar di tahun baru, Januari 2022. Sampai jumpa!
