April 25, 2014  Kartini Day at Supermal Pakuwon Indah

Kartini Day is being celebrated among the whole students from Kindergarten to Grade 8.
This time we presented the theme: "the Worldwide Perspective of Kartini".

Bearing as second class citizen of her own nation, Kartini did not limit herself from learning the best she could. While Javanese was the common language used and speaking Dutch was such a prestige during the period of colonial time those days, Kartini had been a young woman who not only could read and grasp Dutch language, yet she could even make quality correspondence with great minds in Netherlands.

Since age 12, she could no longer attend school, however, Kartini's reading included the Semarang newspaper De Locomotief, edited by Pieter Brooshooft, as well as leestrommel, a set of magazines circulated by bookshops to subscribers. She also read cultural and scientific magazines as well as the Dutch women's magazine De Hollandsche Lelie, to which she began to send contributions which were published. Before she was 20 she had read Max Havelaar and Love Letters by Multatuli. She also read De Stille Kracht (The Hidden Force) by Louis Couperus, the works of Frederik van Eeden, Augusta de Witt, the Romantic-Feminist author Goekoop de-Jong Van Eek and an anti-war novel by Berta von Suttner, Die Waffen Nieder! (Lay Down Your Arms!). All were in Dutch.

Therefore if last year we celebrated Kartini Day with "lagu daerah" (Indonesian traditional folksongs), this year 2014, as a tribute to the worldwide thinking of Kartini, Ivy students presented various musical performances with current English songs which are popular, yet inspiring.

Enjoy and be forever inspired!
