Written by

To commemorate the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia, the Students' Council of SMP IT BBS (OSIS) invited students of SMPIT BBS to participate and enjoy the 17 August competition.

As we know in Indonesia Independence Day is celebrated by holding flag raising ceremonies and competitive games .

It is the first year since the Covid-19 pandemic began that the school has held a series of celebrations

to mark Indonesia's Independence.

Due to Covid-19 we were not allowed to hold events that attract crowds.But this year due to the improvement in the COVID-19 situation, we could finally celebrate with friends.

Students of SMP IT enthusiastically participated in games like:

Sack Race (Balap Karung)


Balap Karung is a very popular game played to celebrate Indonesia's Independence Day. It is actually Betawi traditional game and it has been played since the Dutch era.

Marble Race (Balap Kelereng)

Do you know that eventhough Balap Kelereng has been played for several decades in Indonesia, it actually originated in Egypt and grew popular in Asia.

Cracker eating contest (Lomba makan kerupuk)

The participants have to eat the kerupuk as fast as they can. But the participants are not allowed to use hands and the winner is the fastest one.

Tug of War ( Tarik tambang).

This game is one of the oldest games in history and was popular in ancient Egypt and Greece. It is also an ancient game that is still played today

Water relay ( Estafet Air)
Participants might be a little wet from the activity but they surely have some fun.
