Students get inspired to aspire at ‘Exploring Career Path’ programme
Students got to explore their vocational choices recently when Sekolah Menengah Sains Kuching Utara (Sakura) hosted the ‘Exploring Career Path: Aspiration for Inspiration’ programme.
Organised by Innovation, Career and Education (Ice) Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) in collaboration with Ikram Siswa Kota Samarahan, 61 Form 5 students got to take part in various activities including group games, sharing from Unimas undergraduates and Ikram Siswa Kota Samarahan and sports.
According to programme director Mohammad Noor Adam Mohd Nasir, the ‘Exploring Career Path: Aspiration for Inspiration’ programme aims at sharing knowledge on career opportunities to school students, apart from motivating them to strive for excellence in academic and co-curricular activities.
It was jointly organised by Ikram Siswa Kota Samarahan and supported by 20 facilitators consisting of Ice Unimas 2016 committee members.
“Community service programmes like this must be emphasised in order to produce students who are more caring and willing to help people in developing excellent and competitive human capital,” he said.
A participant of the programme Abdul Muzhaffar Adenan described it as very important in providing knowledge to school students on challenges they will have to face in the efforts to get a job in the future.
“With such exposure, it is hoped that it will make the students more focused and directed for entering universities according to their preferred fields of study,” he said.
SAKURA representative Dalina Ismail who is the counselling teacher, said that they welcome any parties, especially Unimas and Ice in bringing undergraduates to school students. The presence of undergraduates in helping the school deemed to be an example and best model that is able to inspire the students.
