Indonesian Independence Day Ceremony

August 21, 2016

This week SHF students and staff were invited to join other schools in Sumba Barat Daya for the annual Indonesian Independence Day ceremony. Hari Merdeka honors August 17th, 1945 when The Republic of Indonesia was officially proclaimed. To celebrate this monumental date, schools from around Sumba Barat Daya performed for important Sumbanese officials including the Bupati of the region. Our students proudly sang “Together We Are Strong,” a song they wrote themselves, as well as Pharrell’s “Happy”.
