A field trip was up in May 23, 2016. All students and teachers in Ivy Middle School left the school out at 8.30 a.m. on the trip to the first spot, Ethnographical Museum of Airlangga University. They arrived there an hour later. First, some of them were frightened by the appearance of the museum as its spooky look. But excitement and curiosity caught them finally. It’s a museum of funeral ceremonies and afterlife depository which exposing plenty of various funeral ceremonies including the philosophical views among them. With the guidance from the host, the students learned a lot of things there.
Second arrival was at Taman Bibit in Rungkut Manyar area. Students and teachers were having fun and relax time there by taking a sight of the plants at botanical garden and the deer confinement at the corner of the garden.
The trip continued. They stepped at 12.30 p.m. in Graha Pena Tower to visit the two giants of media in Surabaya; Jawa Pos and SBO TV. Students did some exposure in Jawa Pos by looking at the news production on the spot and how the supervisor carries on the time management of the workload between the reporter and the editor to oversee the news distribution each day. The different thing was up in SBO TV. As one of the leading broadcasting companies in Surabaya, things laying on it are also great. Students finally knew how to produce news, movie, music, advertisement, and many other programs that they sometimes watch on television. One of the guides said, that broadcasting is one of the promising fields that the students might be interested to study about.
Ms. Hanna Dewi S., S.ST, the Middle School principal who also joined the trip once said, “This field trip is expected to ignite student’s enthusiasm in studying media, so they might value it as a beneficial thing for their future.”
