For two days the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech Jamaica) opened their doors to high school students and the public to showcase their faculties and colleges at their annual Open House. Held on October 24 and 25 at the Alfred Sangster Auditorium of the Papine Campus, students toured the campus, submitted face-to-face applications, and attended special guidance counsellors’ sessions.
Students from high schools across the island were present along with guidance counsellors, parents, and members of the public. From Clarendon, there were Clarendon College, Edwin Allen High School, Vere Technical High School, Garvey Maceo High School, and Lennon High School.
Holmwood Technical High School represented Manchester, Iona High School was present for St Mary, Morant Bay High School from St Thomas, and Tarrant High School from Kingston. The students and guidance counsellors explored the booths and engaged in conversations and interviewed representatives from the various faculties and colleges who highlighted what their respective programs offered. Multiple applications were submitted by students after they explored the different booths and selected their choice.
