KUALA LUMPUR: Travelling all the way from Ipoh by train, friends Tan Woon Pin and Ong Cheng Shin attended the Star Education Fair 2017 for the first time.
“There are many institutions under one roof.
“I am finding it very useful as I am gaining new knowledge about the course I want to join which is computer engineering,” said Tan.
The school-leaver and his friend left Ipoh at 7.30am yesterday and will be returning home at the end of the second day of the fair.
Twins Daniel and Dennis Yeoh, who just completed their SPM last year, also travelled to the fair from Ipoh on the 7.30am train.
“It helped me realise the importance of the right education for my future,” said Daniel.
Dennis said the reason they attended the fair was to find out the most suitable institution to sign up with.
The former SMJK Yuk Choy, Ipoh, students are both looking to major in Information Technology (IT).
Their father James Yeoh, who accompanied them, said it was their first time at the fair which had left them spoilt for choice.
Nur Ayu Athirah and Nur Ayu Athikah, aged 18 and 17 respectively, were among the early birds at the fair.
They wanted to find information on potential pre-university courses.
