Yarragon Early Learning Centre students have started learning Indonesian.

Indonesian teacher Emma Gubbels, otherwise known as Ibu Gubbels, visits the ELC at Yarragon Primary School twice a week to teach new songs.

The group is learning two songs.

One is a hello or greeting song with actions which progressively get faster.

The second is a counting song which teaches how to count to 10.

All the children are enjoying having a go at learning a different language and look forward to Ibu Gubbels’ visits.

They are always keen to get up and be a dancing flower while singing “Bunga Bunga”.
