THE Michael J Indonesian School Concert in Oz was a big hit with Mandurah Baptist College students as the Lakes Theatre hosted 20 schools and more than 1150 students from Years 6-12 to celebrate Languages Week.

Other special guests included Mandurah MLA David Templeman, the Consul General for the Republic of Indonesia and a Skype visit from the Indonesian Ambassador in Canberra.

The atmosphere was electric with students joining Michael for many of their favourite Indonesian songs.

The concert was live streamed to Perth’s sister city Surabaya in East Java with around 2000 Indonesian students joining the concert via the live stream.

Indonesian teacher Tavish Redgrave said the concert was a great opportunity for students to have real-life interaction with Indonesian-speaking communities and learn about many Indonesian themes, topics and language through music.
