Tri Mahka showcases culture, knowledge

To celebrate International Education Week recently, Hannibal High School foreign exchange student Tri Mahka introduced her classmates to Indonesian culture.

Mahka, one of the Hannibal Central School District’s three foreign exchange students this year, talked with elementary, middle and high school students about her home country. She delivered several presentations detailing Indonesian geography, government, customs and traditions.

“Our school and our daily life are so different back home,” Mahka said, explaining that classes at her school in Indonesia are held outside rather than in buildings.

She also showed students Indonesian currency and other items from the place she calls home.
