On April 7, Binus School Serpong held its second annual Archery National Championship to celebrate sports and extracurricular activities. As many as 631 students from elementary, junior and high schools participated in the events. Students from other local and international schools were also invited to forge a stronger bond.
Head of the championship’s committee, Denny, revealed that he was very pleased by the excitement coming from participants this year. “The participants’ level of enthusiasm this year is extraordinary. As a prestigious championship, we invited an international technical officer this year, Johari Abu Bakar, who previously led the Archery World Cup in various nations. It is an honour to have him this year,” said Denny in a press statement.
Meanwhile, Bakar himself is supportive of the event and hopes that this would develop local talents in archery. “I believe that Binus School Serpong has succeeded in increasing the interests for archery among students. I hope that this kind of activity would help Indonesia to be known as a country that has fine archery athletes.”
