TCS Open Day entices students to higher learning with ‘Carnival’ theme
By Jude Toyat
Technology College Sarawak (TCS) held its 2016 Open Day on March 12 in collaboration with Hitz FM as the official radio station.
With the recent release of SPM results, Open Day aimed to provide Form 5 and 6 students, as well as SPM and STPM leavers the opportunity to experience studying at a higher learning institution such as TCS.
With that in mind, many activities were designed and conducted by the TCS staff, both academicians and administrative alike with some of the best, most interactive and intellectual games to prospective students.
‘Carnival’ was the concept chosen for this Open Day, with an additional campus tour led by the college’s student council.
Among the other activities include academic presentations, mock-classes, financial exhibition, food bazaar, as well as games organised by TCS’s academic team.
The highlight of the event, however, had to be the motivational talk by Datuk Jake Abdullah, better known as ‘Jakeman’ and a special appearance by Arnold from the Hitz FM Morning Crew.
Visitors were also given the opportunity to win a Mac-Book Pro during the Open Day.
To do so, the first 50 persons who signed up for the motivational talk and participated in the Hitz FM competition had to work together in groups to fight for the title of Best Team and Best Presenter respectively.
Aside from the MacBook Pro, some visitors even managed to walk away with a scholarship to study at TCS, part of its efforts to give back to the community through providing affordable and accessible education.
The success of TCS Open Day was not only the result of the cooperation amongst the staff, but also amongst its students as part of the TCS family.
With tireless enthusiasm and pride for their college, they had dedicated a day of their weekend to bring visitors around the campus, playing games, coordinating activities alongside the staff, and even interacting with the crowd with their lively performances.
