(5/26/2013)

The Rector of Bali’s Teachers’ College (IKIP PGRI), Drs. I Made Suarta, has told the State News Agency Antara that the Balinese language forms an intrinsic part of Bali’s soul and charm (taksu) and, as such, cannot be allowed to fade into oblivion. Speaking at commencement ceremonies for IKIP PGRI on Friday, May 24, 2013, Suarta said, “Because of this, we hope the Balinese language is always preserved and spoken on the planet.”

He went on to stress that the role of the Balinese language in the daily life of the Balinese provides comfort and peace to its speakers.

To help safeguard the language of the Balinese people, Governor Made Mangku Pastika has introduced legislation requiring Balinese form a park of the Island’s educational curriculum from grade school until middle school.

Made Suarta explained how IKIP PGRI offers eight fields of study, one of which is the study of Balinese and Indonesian literature.

With the Governor’s new regulation, educators hope that Balinese will continue to exist and prosper by continually preparing qualified teachers for the Island grade and middle schools.

Of the 532 teachers graduated on Friday from IKIP PGRI Bali 114 had completed studies in Balinese and Indonesian literature.

The remaining other graduates from IKIP PGRI Bali included 224 obtain certificates in teaching and counseling, 10 in teaching drama and music, 87 in economic and business studies, 24 in history studies, 21 in physical education, 41 in mathematics and 11 in biological studies.
