Gawai and Teachers’ Day

Teachers’ Day (16 May) and Gawai Dayak (1 & 2 June) were jointly celebrated in the school on 27 May 2016 with a Mass and assembly. Students came to school in their casual dress (mufti day).

Performances were presented by the students to celebrate Gawai and Teachers’ Day. They were:

  • cultural dance
  • agogo dance
  • modern dance
  • poco-poco dance

On top of that, there was a Kumang/Keling (Iban)-Dayung Sangon/Dari Pogan (Bidayuh)-Keligit/Belawan (Orang Ulu) Costume Pageant. A symbolic ceremony for Gawai celebration called the Tumbuk Padi & Napan Podi was also carried out.
