Lapinu Christmas

Santa Claus Comes to Lapinu


Matawai Katingga Elementary School, Lapinu Parallel Class is located in Kahaungi Eti District, East Sumba, approximately 2 hours from the city center in Waingapu. This parallel class was built independently by the guardians of the students who are local people because the distance between the house and the main school is far enough for children to walk to school, which is approximately 8 km. The number of students in this school is 39 students for grade 1 students. up to grade 6.

Lapinu Elementary School together with the surrounding community will celebrate Christmas in 2019, only it will be celebrated on January 10, 2020 because it coincides with the handover of report cards/provides an opportunity for teachers who live far away in another city to celebrate Christmas with their loved ones.
