KUCHING: Yayasan Sarawak organised the Sarawak Education Expo which was held simultaneously throughout the state on Saturday.
The expo, held in collaboration with Sarawak Resident and District Office and the Education District Office, provided information on the most recent educational opportunities for students, particularly SPM leavers.
Parents welcomed the expo, saying that it was important and would help their children to decide which courses to pursue.

During our time, no such exposure was given. Therefore, it is hoped that students can take advantage of such opportunities provided by the state government.

The exposure provided through this expo allows not only students but also their parents to know about their study options. This will allow students to decide on the best courses to take.

It is a very good initiative to organise the expo as it can provide students insights and enable them to identify suitable courses that they want to take. It also provides knowledge to the parents that it is not necessary for their children to continue further studies outside Sarawak because the state also has its own institutions of higher learning.
MERZAN HASHIM, 57
Programmes like this for SPM leavers will certainly benefit them as they have the platform to choose their field of study or institutions in Sarawak. It is good for their careers and future. In addition, there are many institutions of higher learning that are participating in this expo, thus making it easier for students to ask about the fields of study that they are interested in.
