Education expo effective platform


KOTA SAMARAHAN: The Sarawak Education Expo 2022 here provides Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) graduates, especially in rural areas, an opportunity to choose a field of further study directly.

Kota Samarahan Member of Parliament Datuk Rubiah Wang, said the initiative to hold education expos in all districts in Sarawak has proven to be very effective.

She said it was not easy for the organisers, Yayasan Sarawak together with the Sarawak Education Department to hold the first expo throughout the state but as a result of their coordination and cooperation, they are successfully running the programme.

She explained that the Sarawak Foundation’s initiative in promoting education to secondary school graduates is important to ensure all categories get the latest information on education in the state.

Samarahan residents who attended the Expo also had the opportunity to witness the opening of the Sarawak Expo 2022 live through Google Meet, officiated by Premier, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg at Sarawak Foundation.

Visitors with guests of honor attended the Sarawak Education Expo 2022 in Kota Samarahan.

“The Sarawak government is committed to staying on track to become a developed state by 2030.

“The establishment of expos in each part of the state should be used as much as possible by the younger generation as an opportunity to guide, obtain information and facilitate them to make achievement targets according to their fields of interest.

“This is a good platform especially for the younger generation because they are the driving force in the state,” she said.

Therefore, she called on the young to take advantage of the opportunities provided.

Earlier, more than 33 outstanding students from the Kota Samarahan area received donations from her.

Also held was the handing over of school uniform aid vouchers to about eight schools around Samarahan.
