Sydney's Australia Indonesia Association (AIA) will host a "Spring Fair" from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 27, 2007, in the terraced garden of Wisma Indonesia, 25 Kent Road, Rose Bay.
The day will be filled with Balinese culture performances, Balinese workshops, raffles, door prizes and stalls offering Balinese goods and culinary treats. Prizes have been generously donated by Ascot Teak, That Bali Shop, Coffee School, Bali Garden, Buddha Belly, Moss River, Bali in Profile, Batu Collections, Ritz Cinema, Bad Back Shop, Asoho, artist Denise Campbell, and Rainbows for Children. Netfare Travel has also generously donated a return ticket to Bali. Those planning a trip to Bali can bid for accommodation at the Warwick Ibah Luxury Villas and Puri Saraswati Bungalows, treatments from Spa Hati and Bali Botanica, as well as a dining voucher from Warung Enak Restaurant - all in Ubud.
President of the AIA, Eric de Haas said: "The AIA, with the support of the Indonesian Consulate and the Indonesian Australian Women's Association (IAWA) and other Indonesian community organisations, is delighted to be organizing this fair to raise money for educational resources for Bali Hati School in Ubud. As entry will be by way of donation, we hope everyone will be generous.
Bali Hati School is an independent school with a few full-fee-paying students. The foundation relies on profits from Spa Hati as well as donations, sponsorships and various events, such as this AIA Spring Fair to meet continuing operational costs. The work of the Bali Hati Foundation was recognised by the Balinese and Indonesian governments in 2005 when it was awarded the ĎMost Outstanding Social Foundationí in Indonesia, particularly in the field of education.
Bali Hati' representative in Australia, Paulette Kay, said, "We're most grateful to the AIA for taking on this project, to the Consulate for their support of it, and to the sponsors who have donated such wonderful prizes." Kay described the Bali Hati School as a primary school catering for approximately 128 children, primarily the children of the poor. The school's 2006 graduating class, its first since opening in 1999, was ranked No. 1 in Ubud. In July 2007 the school ranked No.1 in Bali
