National Heroes’ Day, November 10th 2018

National Heroes’ Day (Hari Pahlawan) is an Indonesian remembrance day observed on November 10th . It commemorates the 1945 Battle of Surabaya that was fought during the Indonesian National Revolution.

The Indonesian National Revolution broke out in 1945, when Indonesia declared its independence from the Netherlands. The battle of Surabaya was one of the most important battles of the war because it helped galvanize international support for the independence of Indonesia.

To honour that event, on November 10th, 2018 BPK PENABUR Bandarlampung  Junior High School, celebrated Heroes Day. On that day, we held some competitions for students, such as Poetry Reading Competition, Short Story Writing Competition, Poster Drawing, Creating Comic, Quiz Bee, and Making Wall Magazine.
