Sabah Education Fair Roadshow begins in Tawau
Published on: Tuesday, March 07, 2017

Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Education Fair Roadshow 2017 is being organised in the State to help give Sabahan students and their parents information on their education and financial matters.

According to Ark Publications Director K. Krishnan, more than half a million students would have received their SPM and STPM results in March.

"Those who have done very well would be hoping to get a scholarship to further their studies.

Those who have not done so well will also be applying for financial aid. Last but not least students who have done very badly will be looking at where they could get an education loan to learn a skill.

"Not everyone who applies for a scholarship or education loan is successful. This is a very crucial period for students as well as their parents. However every person who wants to study must be given an opportunity to continue their education. No one should be denied the right to study just because they don't have the money."

He said applying for a loan was also not an easy task.

"Students need to know whether they are eligible to apply. They must know where to apply and how to apply.

However, not everyone gets the opportunity to learn this while in school. How are students especially those from rural areas going to get the information. This is why the roadshow will travel to eight venues throughout Sabah."

The roadshow will be from 11am to 3pm at Tawau Library (March 6), Lahad Datu Dynasty Hotel (March 7), Sandakan Library (March 9), Ranau Library (March 10), Kudat Library (March 13), Keningau Library (March 14) and Beaufort Library (March 16) and at 11am to 6pm for Kota Kinabalu at the State Library on March 17.

He said students who are looking for some form of financial assistance should make use of this opportunity to visit the Fair.

"They will be given the opportunity to know all about scholarships and loans.

In addition, they will get a Financial Aid for Education Directory. This will be given out free to all visitors," he added.

The Sabah Education Fair Roadshow 2017 is organised by ARK, a career guidance house which has been organising such roadshows for the last 20 years.
