Indonesia Expat - - ANNOUNCEMENTS -


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.”
