KUALA LUMPUR, 6 November 2006- Ever since University College Sedaya International (UCSI) launched its Edu-Van two years ago, its Edu-Jays are well-loved by secondary school students everywhere they went.
The brainchild of its Director of Corporate Communications, Stephen Ng, the UCSI Edu-Van concept has made learning more fun to secondary school students.
“We want secondary school students to know that college life can be a great deal of fun,” he said. “Quizzes are done to create the atmosphere for learning. Freebies and other attractive prizes are given away to students who manage to answer the quiz questions.”
He added that the Edu-Van is a strategic bridge which UCSI hopes to build with secondary school students.
When the Edu-Van turned up at Sekolah Menengah Seafield in Petaling Jaya on Monday Nov 6, students were all hyped up to see the team, headed by Edu-Jay Elaine Toon.
Toon, herself a music student, said being an edu-jay herself can be really fun. “It is a good way of keeping away the examination blues,” she said. “We get to interact with our juniors at school.”
UCSI’s School of Management and Information Technology also conducted an exposure on knowledge of Information Technology. Its Head of Computing Department, Chloe Thong was excited with the response from the students at SM Seafield.
“They are so enthusiastic in learning new things,” she said. “We hope to conduct more exposure trips to schools, where we showcase some of our student IT projects.”
UCSI Edu-Jays will also be making a special appearance at CMC Centre in Taman Connaught on December 16 (3pm – 7pm), in conjunction with this year’s Christmas Celebration of Love Carnival, a month-long event jointly organized by CMC Centre, Jubilees Initiative Malaysia Berhad and UCSI.
