One of the teachers of SMA Islam Athirah Bahar Mattaliu, S.E., M.Si., said that he has taken his students to UNAIR twice in last six months.
“Last December we have been here with class XII students. Because there’s different program starting this year, in the future we will come here with class XI students,” said Bahar.
The vice school principal on student affairs added that the agenda has been communicated to each parent of the students. So, every parent and family can prepare for their trip long before.
