Achievements

For years and years, Indosoc has always been known for their achievements and involvement within the Universities’ and Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia – UK activities. The diversity of Indonesian culture helps us a lot in presenting a wide range of different cultures and faces of Indonesia. Here are an example of what we have achieved:

  • International Food Evening – November 2000

International Food Evening Event was held by the University of Sheffield every year. This year it was held in Octagent Centre and the number of countries contribute to the event was quite some. Indonesian Society always participated on this event every year and this year the Balinese decoration replaced the Padang to become the main view in the decoration of Indonesian Society’s stall.

Our architect from Sheffield Hallam University, Kastawan had design and layout. His coordonation to set up the stall with Indonesian society contribution made the stall become public most attention! And we were quite sure hoping to be elected as one of the criteria … the best that night. And it was the dream comes true.

After years of participating in this event for the first time, Indonesia Society got the award, elected as The Best Stall. It was the combination of proud, thanks and bless. All this stuff dedicate to the person and Indonesian Society in Sheffield who contribute to the performance, not only the set up decoration but also for the food and all the stallers ūüôā

  • March 2001

On March for the academic year, the event that we have to face is
The Cultural Evening. We did prepared well this year as angklung always become the attraction for foreigner, they might wonder how come bamboo can contribute nice harmony and perform good rythm?Indonesian Society answered those all questions that night. The major of Sheffield City came and the representatives of Indonesian Society gave the souvenir to the Major, the miniatur of Angklung, so she might practise herself at home ūüôā

Many thanks for all contribution. See you next year.

  • April 2001

The International Students Committee, University of Sheffield has nominate Indonesian Society into 3 categories for this year (2000/2001) i.e.  The Best Society, The Best President and The Best in Welfare Provision.

As The International Ball held before Easter, we knew the decision that Indonesian Society was elected as to get an honour as The Best President. Congatulation! As a humble person as usual he said that this success belongs to Indonesian Society in Sheffield not for particular individual only. He thanks to all contribution given by Indoensian Society for any activities held through this year.

Congratulation again.

  • International Food Evening 2002 di University of Sheffield

Walaupun akhir-akhir ini nama Indonesia agak “kurang bisa dibanggakan” di dunia internasional, namun akhir-pekan lalu masih ada juga celah kebanggaan bagi kami di kota Sheffield yang sedang didera musim dingin ini.¬† Bendera merah putih ditampilkan di panggung; kata “Indonesia” disebut¬†dengan nada penghargaan; hadirin dari berbagai bangsa berdiri memberikan applausnya.

Syukur Alhamdulillah……….¬†¬† Pada acara International Food Evening Festival 2002 di University of Sheffield yang berlangsung pada hari Sabtu 16 November kemarin, PPI Sheffield (atau: Indosoc, singkatan dari the Indonesian Students Society) telah mendapat perhargaan “The Best Stall Decoration Award”.¬†¬† Perhargaan ini diraih oleh Indosoc untuk yang KETIGA KALINYA BERTURUT-TURUT.

Ketua dan pengurus berganti terus, namun Indosoc terus menyabet penghargaan.¬† Fenomena apakah ini??¬†¬†Setelah penyelidikan yang mendalam, kami menemukan satu hal yang selalu ada dalam tiga kemenangan tsb, yaitu: sosok YS sebagai penjaga stall legendaris…..¬†¬† Begitu serasi penampilannya dalam pakaian daerah Lombok di stall Indosoc setiap¬†tahun pada International Food Evening Festival, sehingga tak terbayangkan acara tahun depan tanpa kehadiran beliau… ¬†Sampai-sampai tersebar issu, jika¬†tahun depan ybs masih berada di Sheffield¬†juga,¬†mungkin Indosoc tidak akan diundang lagi sebagai peserta, karena kasihan student’s society lainnya tidak kebagian menang.

Selamat kepada Pengurus Indosoc, terutama para anggota “Satgas Fut Ivining” yang telah mempersiapkan stall Indosoc¬†pada malam-malam yang dingin¬†itu.¬†¬† Terimakasih atas segala bantuan dan dukungan keluarga besar Indosoc dari yang tertua sampai yang junior; dari yang mendekor, mengangkut, memasak,¬†meminjamkan alat sampai¬†kepada supporter dan penggembira dari luar kota; juga terimakasih kpd mas Narno yang telah meminjamkan satu set wayang kulit.

Terimakasih Tuhan………… mohon tunjukkan juga jalan yang benar supaya kami dapat berhasil dalam studi dan karir……….(Julison Arifin – 2002, edited)

  • International Food Evening 2003 di University of Sheffield

We were the runner up of the overall Best Stall category. Eventhough we didn’t win the Best Stall, but all-in-all, this was a progress and an achievement as this time all the elements of the stall were nicely combined.

  • Global Flavas 2005

Indosoc stall won the Best Stall again in the Global Flavas event 2005. We won a BIG Trophy this time. It’s still shining nicely.
