Robert “Nick” Nichols, Nieuw Jakarta’s academic director, sent us the following note and photos from the center’s Christmas party. Nieuw Jakarta is HAL’s crew training center in Jakarta, Indonesia.
ms Nieuw Jakarta’s Crew Activity and PEP committee recently hosted the end of year Christmas party at msNJ. ms Nieuw Jakarta’s Lido restaurant was turned into a winter wonderland full of snowflakes and stars. Activities included Christmas carols by the msNJ choir, a sit down 3 course formal dinner served to the students by management, teachers and trainers and local staff, a gift exchange and a Christmas show put on by the classes. A talent show was held and each class performed with one of the old Christmas standards and added their own twist to it through dance and singing and costume. Enjoyed by all was a special visit from Santa who flew in all the way from the north pole to hand out the gifts and raffle ticket prizes. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
