INDONESIAN students from Year 6 and Year 10 at the Glen Forrest and Darlington campuses are celebrating wins in Kompetisi Klip-2, a statewide video competition run by the West Australian Indonesian Language Teachers’ Association.

At Helena College campus Darlington, the Year 6 students were declared overall winners of the competition for their video Hoki Poki – singing an Indonesian version of the traditional children’s song The Hokey Pokey.

The students rehearsed for several weeks with their teachers, Ibu Danielle Horne and Pak Jeremy Snyder before filming with media and ICT staff on the school oval.

The hard work paid off as all worth it; the Hoki Poki video beat 26 other entries from around the state to win Kompetisi Klip-2 with a score of 55 out of a possible 60 points.

It was also winner of the Best Recorded Live Performance in the age category.

The Year 10s won in their age category with best Recorded Live Performance for their version of the song Intoxicated, and best Music Video Clip for Flash.

The students will be invited to a special day at the Indonesian Consulate to receive their prize.
