Indicators consisting of musholla, wudhu site, and prayer equipment availability at elementary schools promoted worship facilities. Indicators involving halal bihalal on Idul Fitri celebration day, slaughtering qurban on Idul Adha day, and a religious gathering to break the fasting in Ramadhan month predicted religious ceremonies. Religious symbols were promoted by religious mottos availability, listening to religious songs weekly, and wearing Moslem uniforms promote religious symbols.
