By Jeff Waxman

In this interview, we’re pulling back the curtain on another person “behind the uniform”… this time we chat with Pak Wayan Metra about being a part of MSB’s safety staff for nearly two decades. Enjoy.

Q: How long have you been working as part of the security team at our Montessori school?

A: I have been part of the security staff at Montessori School Bali from August 14, 2005 until today – 19 years this August. That’s quite a long time too!

Q: Wow, that is a long time! What motivates you to continue working here?

A: My motivation for working here is definitely to earn income to support my family. The work environment is also very comfortable, especially for the Security team, which is divided into 3 work shifts.

Q: How do you collaborate with other staff members, teachers, and administrators to ensure a safe and secure learning environment?

A: I always try to collaborate and respect fellow employees in the work environment. I also work according to the applicable SOP,  and do not feel like I am the most senior,  even though I have worked here the longest.

Q: Do you get to interact with the students very much? If so, do you have a favourite story? 

A: No, I do not get to interact too much with students – they are busy in the classroom!

Q: What is your favourite thing about working in a school?

A: The comfortable and conducive work environment, including a sense of family created by fellow employees.
