In this part I want to
share my another activity when I join Sea Teacher Program.
On Friday January, 11th
at 08 am. We’re going to Dayao
Campus to have our Opening and Welcome Ceremony. This is our first day to meet with all the
exchange students in CAPSU. They are :
Mr. David En Nur Azka

Ms Neneng Triyunita
Ms. Agtari Dwi Utami

Ms. Dhea Melia Sari
Ms. Sri Agustina
Ms. Rutsika Chumpaburi
Ms. Tipachporn Inkliang
But sadly, not all of us can attend the opening and welcome ceremony, our friends Dhe and Sri can not attend because they were come late. They have a flight from Indonesia to Philippines a few days later.
The welcoming event was held lively with various events starting from national anthem, opening remarks, welcome remarks and inspirational message from Dr. Editha C. Alfon as SUC President III and the series of events so on until closing remarks
After the opening and welcome ceremony, all student
exchange participants were taken to the Capiz Division
After the division of Capiz, we also visited the Division of Roxas

and last but not least for this part, I also tried a special beverages from Capiz, that is Halo-halo

and refreshing, you should try this when you come to Panay Island J
I got so excited because I already in
the Philippines after a long journey, it
took 2 days cause I have a transit flight first. Fyuh. Okay next, so here I am
in the Philippines.
On Thursday, January 10th 2019. Me and Neneng Triyunita (my friend who also join this program, we came from the same campus that is UAD) arrived at the Roxas Airport around 7 am. We are welcomed by Ma’am Grazl Tupaz Baria as my coordinator from Dayao Satellite College-Capiz State University, Ronna as my buddy, Ma’am Susan as Neneng’s coordinator from Main Campus-Capiz State University, Ma’am Grace Galagate as Neneng’s mentor and Daisy as Neneng’s buddy.
After that we had a breakfast at Santonio Resort. Actually this day I feel so sleepy because we spend our 2 night before at NAIA or Manila International Airport and Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Indonesia. But I feel so glad after met them, so that sleepy feeling just like a wind… swoosh, its gone 😉

Here are some pictures of my campus orientation in Dayao Satellite College :
In this part I want to share
to you guys, the reason why I want to join Sea Teacher Program. But before I
tell you, maybe there are some of you who doesn’t know what kind of program is
The SEA Teacher Project or the “Pre-Service
Student Teacher Exchange in Southeast Asia” is a project that aims to provide
opportunity for pre-service student teachers from universities in Southeast
Asia to have teaching experiences (practicum) in schools in other countries in
Southeast Asia. (http://seateacher.seameo.org/seateacher/)
This is very interesting for
me, this is can be my chance to develop my teaching skill and pedagogy, to
observ and expose how the teaching and learning situations in other country
especially in ASEAN. I also want to practice my english skill because I have
(must) speak English while in the other country right? and last but not least I
want to go out of my comfort zone.
how I can Join this Program?
Head of Elementary Education in my campus send a broadcast message to each
class in 3rd year student. I got that information from my Classmate.
He told me that there is a program that you can go abroad. In the beginning I
was not put too much attention. But then after re-thinking about it, I want to
join this program!!! Because it must be very fun, you can go abroad, explore
new places, surrounding with more peoples that you don’t know before.
decided to register myself. first step that I have to do is interview with OIA
(Office International Affairs) in Campus 1 Ahmad Dahlan University. Next step
is microteaching! It might be familiar for you who take major in education, yes
that is practice teaching in the class.
one week, I received an announcement that I pass the first step! I scream
excitedly when I read that, it was written “Agtari Dwi Utami” with receiving
university “CAPSU PHILIPPINES”
Next, I have to prepare my online interview with receiving campus. It was scheduled at 26 Nov at 2.30-3.30 pm in Philippines Time. And yes! The day is coming, I was interviewed directly by the President of CAPSU! Ma’am EDITHA C. ALFON, Ph.D . Actually I was so nervous that day, maybe if you were there you can see how my hands were trembling, haha.
After several days, Ma’am Dessy from Office International Affairs UAD told me that I pass the interview, and I was accepted in SEA TEACHER BATCH 7.
“Don’t be afraid to start something ((positively)). Don’t be afraid to go out from your comfort zone.”
And here are some pictures when the campus and faculty staff sending us :
