In addition, the feast could also be used to transfer cultural and religious values. Thus, the students could really get a mature enrichment of religious teaching and cultural enrichment. Other than through school institution, they can also get deepening from family and the community, especially when directly getting involved in ritual and cultural activities. How beautiful it is if the holiday can be taken advantage for such a benefit.
He said that parents should involve them in preparing oblations or other ritual paraphernalia in order the holiday could be beneficial to children’s understanding on cultural and religious values. Parents were also expected to provide a perfect explanation on the meaning behind the rituals so that the dogmatic norms would no longer become a kind of culture. Long holiday is not merely to celebrate a festive season, but there is a meaning in the context of increasing faith and devotion. Children must also intensively be involved in their respective community through religious and cultural activities.

We hope that Galungan and Kuningan holiday can be taken advantage properly by schools, communities and parents in order to support the character education of students. We believe that school has been very creative in its execution,” she said.
