The official grand launch of the latest Pingu’s English School for young children of 3-8 years old, took place in Puri Indah, Indonesia on Saturday.
PT. Larkindo Sinar Anugrah, Pingu’s English licensee for Puri Indah, celebrated the launch with a lively stage performance from the students, as well as a magic show and a singing competition. Parents and children alike were very enthusiastic about the program, as they toured the new school’s facilities.
Presiding at the event, Mr. Victor Chan, CEO of Pingu’s English Master Licensee for the whole of Indonesia, told the audience:
“We are delighted to welcome PT. Larkindo Sinar Anugrah to our growing Pingu’s English network in Indonesia. Children in Puri Indah will now have a top, premium English language school from which to develop their skills in the English language. There is no doubt that the early years are a critical time for building a solid foundation for English language proficiency, and there is no course better developed for children of this age than Pingu’s English.”
