DENPASAR, Bali (BPN) – Tunas Daud School held its annual Tunas Daud Learning Innovation Festival (TD LIF), on Friday. This activity aimed to facilitate early childhood education (PAUD) to high school students, to express their creative ideas and innovations that they develop based on the learning process during the first semester.

The festival located at Tunas Daud School, Jl. Kebo Iwa Utara 8, Denpasar, was also attended by the Chairman of the Indonesian Teachers Association (PGRI) of Bali, supervisor of junior and senior high schools in Denpasar, as well as teachers from kindergarten to high school levels.

TD LIF 2020 themed “Be Innovative” in which students develop more creative ideas, discoveries, and innovation in terms of features, functions, procedures, and responsibilities, as outlined in the learning cycle. Students were also guided by teachers to finally resulting products and or services.

The students’ innovations were also held based on entrepreneurship project learning, which has been integrated into daily learning for the last 8 years in Tunas Daud School and became one of the main supporters of the implementation of TD LIF.

As a result, innovations are not only in the form of products but also in the form of services and performance.

This shows that entrepreneurship education does not just about selling, but rather how students can read opportunities, shape their character and can create jobs from the opportunities they find.

The TD LIF 2020 also still in the context of showing the consistency of the school in supporting the Perwali (mayoral regulation) 36 in 2018 and the Pergub (governor regulation) 97 in 2018 on the movement to reduce plastic waste.
