Asian Trails Bali Help French TV Executives Pay A Rewarding Visit on a Bali Elementary School.

(5/22/2006) Approximately 127 employees of Canal+ Canal Sat - the huge French TV broadcasting and film conglomerate, took time out on Thursday, May 18, 2006, to pay a visit on the students of SDN 3 Tunjuk - a grade school in Bali's Tabanan region.

Part of a tour of the local traditional banjar of Beng to experience first-hand how daily life is transacted in Bali, the busy executives paused at the school to watch the children at the their daily lessons and to make a much appreciated donation of writing materials, sports equipments and medical appliances.

Joel Robert, a Director of Canal+ Canal Sat, told the Bali Post that children must always be encouraged to expand their creativity while praising the children of Tunjuk for the warm welcome afforded his group.

Filmed for future presentation on Canal+ Canal Sat, the visit so impressed the media executives that they were reportedly reluctant to leave their new-found friends among the children attending the school.

According to the General Manager of Asian Trails, Ratnasari Harjono, who coordinated the Canal+ Canal Sat visit, a second group from the same company is scheduled to revisit the village and school in late May.
