Dyatmika School has a strong and stable community. Dyatmika has a deep foundation in the Balinese community, while welcoming families from other places in Indonesia and around the world. Many families send their children to Dyatmika for their entire school career. Our welcoming school is small enough to recognise and embrace the strength of every individual, yet big enough to be socially diverse. In over two decades of operation the school has grown steadily from 27 students to over 600 students from the youngest in Playgroup to our oldest in the graduating Class 12.
Dyatmika’s parent body is active and energetic in its support of the school. On joining the school parents automatically become members of the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).
We are committed to improving the quality of education beyond the school by hosting Indonesian trainee teachers and delivering workshops for teachers from National schools.
Dyatmika also supports its local community through the employment of staff from the local Banjar and through links with various other community focused, environmental and charity organisations.
In response to the increasing amount of traffic on the island, the PTFA Transport Subcommittee has created a survey to gather information in the hopes of setting up a shuttle bus system to and from school, organised by the PTFA. Our intention is to decrease the amount of traffic as well as reduce our carbon footprint in Bali. In order to configure the logistics for this system and determine if this is a possibility, we will first need to get valuable information from the Dyatmika community. How can you help? It's easy...

All parents also receive a bi-monthly update about the school and community via the Dyatmika Newsletter. This newsletter highlights the key ongoings in the school during the past two school weeks and gives an outline of what parents can expect in the coming two weeks as well. You can view the latest newsletter here.
Reading and literacy take high priority in Dyatmika’s learning culture. Our library provides access to over 10,000 books in both English and Indonesian to support the curriculum and the bilingual programme. Students also have access to magazines, eBooks and online encyclopedias through our Follett Destiny online database. The library is created to be a comfortable and well resourced space for students to read, research, work in groups and use our computer facilities for independent work.
We are open Monday to Friday from 7 30 AM to 4 PM, including during school holidays. Each class has at least one weekly scheduled visit to the library for returning and borrowing books, storytelling, and dedicated reading time. Students may also access the library in their free time. We welcome parents to come to the library with their children to choose and share books together.
