As the Bees and Butterflies theme came to an end, the Eco Warriors organised a festival to raise awareness of the need for the conservation of bees and butterflies. The festival was held on Sunday, 15 May 2022 and located at Begawan’s Learning Centre in Melinggih Kelod, Payangan. Our Eco Warriors invited their family members, friends and other special guests to attend the festival. This festival was led by our beloved MC, Wayan, who is also one of our Eco Warriors.

During the festival, there were various performances, including a choir singing in English, a contemporary dance, and a mini-drama about bees and butterflies. The choir consisted of eight students: Devi, Yudi, Welian, Gek Sinta, Arysma, Saktu, Dekta, and Kayela. They performed a song entitled ‘A Million Dreams’ which is from the soundtrack of the movie, The Greatest Showman.

The festival then moved on to a contemporary dance performance. This dance group consisted of ten students: Angga, Sangtu, Deva, Dode Ana, Levin, Juna, Gek Sinta, Ayunda, Dewayu, and Luh Sri. They performed a dance created by our Balinese Dance facilitator, Dek Sri. The dance itself told of children who live in metropolitan cities paying a visit to a village where they were amazed to see picturesque scenery.

The mini-drama was performed by Angga, Sangtu, Deva, Gek Sinta, Dewayu, Sangade, Juna, Levin, Ayunda, and Luh Sri. The storyline told of farmers who usually spray chemical pesticides on their plants without knowing that the pollinators’ lives could be in danger because of the chemical content of the pesticides..

After enjoying the performances, the guests moved to the location of a variety of exhibits. The exhibition was run by Danu, Rizka, Nata, Dhiky, Made, Yudi, and Teguh, who showcased various products including beeswax candles, bee hives, young plants, and ogoh-ogoh, a kind of Balinese statue or giant doll. Guests were also able to enjoy meals and drinks sold by our Eco Warriors: iced coconut water and Tipat cantok, a Balinese dish made of boiled vegetables with ketupat rice cake, served in peanut sauce.

By the end of the festival, the Eco Warriors had successfully earned income from guests who bought the products and meals they provided. Our students not only learned to perform in front of a big audience, but they also learned entrepreneurial skills. We sincerely want to congratulate our students for the success of this event. We are very proud of each of them!

Saat tema Lebah dan Kupu-kupu berakhir, Pejuang Lingkungan menyelenggarakan festival untuk meningkatkan kesadaran akan konservasi lebah dan kupu-kupu. Festival ini diadakan pada hari Minggu, 15 Mei 2022 dan bertempat di Pusat Belajar Begawan di Melinggih Kelod, Payangan. Pejuang Lingkungan kami mengundang anggota keluarga, teman, dan tamu istimewa lainnya untuk menghadiri festival. Festival ini dipimpin oleh MC kami tercinta, Wayan, yang juga merupakan salah satu Pejuang Lingkungan kami.

Selama festival, ada berbagai pertunjukan, termasuk paduan suara bernyanyi dalam bahasa Inggris, tarian kontemporer, dan drama mini tentang lebah dan kupu-kupu. Paduan suara terdiri dari delapan siswa: Devi, Yudi, Welian, Gek Sinta, Arysma, Saktu, Dekta, dan Kayela. Mereka membawakan lagu berjudul ‘A Million Dreams’ yang merupakan soundtrack film The Greatest Showman.

Festival kemudian beralih ke pertunjukan tari kontemporer. Kelompok tari ini beranggotakan sepuluh siswa: Angga, Sangtu, Deva, Dode Ana, Levin, Juna, Gek Sinta, Ayunda, Dewayu, dan Luh Sri. Mereka menampilkan tarian yang diciptakan oleh fasilitator Tari Bali kami, Dek Sri. Tarian itu sendiri menceritakan tentang anak-anak yang tinggal di kota metropolitan yang berkunjung ke sebuah desa dimana mereka dibuat takjub melihat pemandangan yang indah.

Mini drama tersebut dibawakan oleh Angga, Sangtu, Deva, Gek Sinta, Dewayu, Sangade, Juna, Levin, Ayunda, dan Luh Sri. Alur cerita menceritakan tentang petani yang biasanya menyemprotkan pestisida kimia ke tanaman mereka tanpa mengetahui bahwa kehidupan penyerbuk bisa dalam bahaya karena kandungan kimia dari pestisida.

Usai menikmati pertunjukan, para tamu pindah ke lokasi berbagai pameran. Pameran yang dipimpin oleh Danu, Rizka, Nata, Dhiky, Made, Yudi, dan Teguh ini menampilkan berbagai produk antara lain lilin lebah, sarang lebah, tanaman muda, dan ogoh-ogoh, sejenis patung atau boneka raksasa khas Bali. Para tamu juga dapat menikmati makanan dan minuman yang dijual oleh Pejuang Lingkungan kami: es air kelapa dan Tipat cantok, masakan Bali yang terbuat dari sayuran rebus dengan lontong ketupat, disajikan dengan saus kacang.

Di akhir festival, para Pejuang Lingkungan berhasil mendapatkan pemasukan dari para tamu yang membeli produk dan makanan yang mereka sediakan. Siswa kami tidak hanya belajar untuk tampil di depan banyak orang, tetapi mereka juga belajar keterampilan kewirausahaan. Kami dengan tulus ingin mengucapkan selamat kepada siswa kami atas keberhasilan acara ini. Kami sangat bangga dengan mereka!
