Last Tuesday, the 19th of May 2020, Sekolah Pilar Indonesia had a great opportunity to invite Bapak Pierson Tambunan and his two sons, Matthew and Jayson, to share their experiences online, about living in Canada. The family moved around nine months ago, to support Bapak Pierson Tambunan who is currently pursuing his Post-Degree Diploma. Matthew and Jayson were former students of Sekolah Pilar Indonesia and are currently studying at Langley Secondary School, Canada.

Adapting to new situations and changes can be a challenge. It takes strength and commitment to progress and face the challenges ahead. Luckily, for the family of Bapak Pierson Tambunan, the adaptation process of living in Canada could be quite easy, since both of his sons, Matthew and Jayson Tambunan have had experiences in Indonesia that helped them adapt to a new environment.

Bapak Pierson Tambunan shared how proud he was when his sons could adapt to the academic system at the new school well. Both Matthew and Jayson received good grades and their communication skills are excellent. They also adapted smoothly to new communities, at school and neighbourhood, by making friends with people from different nationalities and showed their appreciation towards diversity.

We were very excited to hold the sharing session, because we knew that Grades 5 up to 12 students and even parents would gain a lot of insights from this family. Bapak Pierson, Matthew and Jayson advised the participants to actively seek for information about finding scholarships, living abroad and related information. They also thanked Sekolah Pilar Indonesia for giving them opportunities to optimize their potential and for encouraging them to always be independent, highly-principled and to appreciate diversity, three prime values that are very crucial as world citizens.

We wish you well, Bapak Pierson Tambunan and family. Good luck for your study and it was really nice to connect again with your lovely family.
