FRIDAY, OCT 29 2016 EDU FAIR had been run by SHS, teachers and OSIS. There were about 23 universities and educational agents coming to present their respective programs. They were Atmajaya University, Parahyangan University from Bandung, BINUS. IES, UPH, SGU, Trisakti University, UMN, just to mention some of them. All SHS teachers and OSIS hosted them by preparing and providing all facilities they needed such as stands, presentation rooms, sound system, food, etc.
Almost all classrooms on the third floor were occupied. We also invited some food vendors to serve the visitors with food. The visitors were all SHS students, parents, grade nine students, students and teachers from neighbouring schools. The third floor area was quite crowded since 8 a.m to 3 p.m.
The visitors and the invited universities are in general satisfied. There are several advantages we have from this event. The students and parents are able to get much information needed for further education. They were enthusiastic and had much time to visit all the univeristy and agent representatves. The students also had a free English test from IELTS. The universities and agents are also satisfied because they had respective rooms for stands and special time and room for group presentation. Food and drink were also provided and we entertained them well. By this we also introduce JPS to them and to other visitors.
I think we would have had more students coming if we really had planned well to have, let’s say, an art show or dance competition. It wiould have driven more students, senior and iunior, to take part and in turn would have had them know more about JPS through those additional activities. Any way, thank God for having run this event quite successfully and hope for a better one in the future
