Ms. Downer from Down Under Visits Ubud School Project

Nicky Downer AO, Wife of Australia's Foreign Minister, Pays a Visit to Bali Hati School in Ubud, Bali.


(10/20/2007)

Nicky Downer, the wife of the Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, recently visited the Yayasan Bali Hati Primary School in Mas, Ubud. The school is part of the non-profit Bali Hati Foundation which provides a variety of health, educational and social welfare assistance to disadvantaged people in Bali.

The Yayasan Bali Hati Primary School was established in 1999 and is located in the village of Mas, close to the Township of Ubud. The school is open to children from playgroup to 6th grade, with scholarships provided to financially disadvantaged students. Since the school's inception, more than 1,100 scholarships have been granted and the school has recently been recognized as the best primary school in Bali by the Government. Nicky Downer

Downer, who visited the school in early October while attending the Ubud's Readers and Writer Festival said: "During my visit to the Yayasan Bali Hati School in Ubud, I was immediately impressed by such a well run operation, with bright airy classrooms and excellent teachers. The children, from around the Ubud area, were extremely well-behaved and I observed were being taught to at an extraordinarily high level for their age. One of the most lovely things I noted, was a collection of brightly colored models of different places of worship made by the children, who are taught something of the many religions of the world. Upon leaving Yayasan Bali Haiti School, I was inspired and filled with admiration of the positive work that the Bali Hati Foundation and it's generous supporters are gifting to the children of Bali."

The Yayasan Bali Hati School has plans to expand to a new property which will incorporate a high school. Fund raising activities are currently in place to secure the capital costs of the program.
