After appearing on the morning TV program, I went to visit Lazuardi Islamic School. The kindgergardeners, dressed in very cute little costumes, put on a beautiful dance for me.

In Indonesia they encourage all children to learn to perform songs and dances. Lazuardi works hard to include all their special children in performances. Here is one of their young autistic children enjoying his song very much!

A lovely rendition of a traditional Indonesian song by one of the older special students.

And one of the youngest special students giving me a personal welcome!

I enjoyed several lovely performances by the children as well as a great rendition of a Lionel Richie song by the teaacher who also sings the holy texts of the Koran for religious services. Later he sang a very beautiful few verses of this holy music.

I talked with the teachers and some of the parents. Then we took lots of pictures!

It is a very happy, good-humoured group at Lazuardi and we laughed a great deal. Here I am with the handsome (and very funny!) male staff.

And the ladies! (Well, not all ladies!)
