STUDENTS and teachers at St Andrew's Christian School in Clarenza were taken to Indonesia this week - kind of.

On Tuesday, they indulged in a variety of traditional Indonesian foods, cooked by teacher Maria Waterson with the help of her students.

They tasted beef rendang curry, satay chicken, a variety of rices and even a nasi tumpeng.

"This is what we serve for special occasions in Indonesia," Mrs Waterson said.

Children performed with angklungs (instruments) on the parade and an excerpt from The Bible was read in both English and Indonesian.

It comes as the school brings Indonesian into its curriculum.

Mrs Waterson said she was honoured to be able to share her culture with the students.

"I am excited because the students get really excited about learning it too," she said.

Principal Mac Lindsay said the students had been learning the language since the start of the year and studying the culture in class.

"They just love it," Mr Lindsay said.

"The idea is that down the track we will send students over to Jakarta to teach English."
