Sunday (22/04), Students, lecturers and staff of English Language Education went to Tanjung Kelingking, Kelurahan Rempang Cate, Batam. Like the earth and sky, the development of Batam is in the opposite of the condition in Tanjung Kelingking. Need 45 minutes to get there from Jembatan 4 by driving through very steep road. Nevertheless, when we arrived, we were welcomed with warmth by local people there. Sitting on a mattress, we were served with seafood while having a sharing.
After taking a rest for a while, we invited children there to play together on the seashore there. To boost their spirit, we sang and danced together. Then, we played skipping rope and asked them to mention names of animal, flower, colours, and etc. Although the sun was very stinging at that time, they still put spirit and smile on their face. It had been an hour, and it was the time we went home. Before going home, we gave them some presents (stationery). I hope you all take more spirit to study, said one of the students of English Language Education.(PBI UIB)
