In welcoming the arrival of Christmas 2022, the Mountainview International School Salatiga held a Christmas Bazaar. This event held a series of events including cultural performance and local bazaar. The event was held in the school hall on Friday, 16 December 2022. The participants in the event were students and families who were present to enliven the event. A number of local and international art performances were also held considering that the school accommodates quite a number of international students.
To add to the euphoria of the event, the school also invited Micro-Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) from Salatiga and its surroundings. Meanwhile, food and beverage stands were also present to facilitate residents of Mountainview.
Apart from that, you are able to see handicraft stands, such as Bengok Craft.
