The training was held as one of many programs launched by the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) for the Revitalization of Vocational Schools Initiative in Indonesia. In his welcome remarks, Dr Supriyanto as the training coordinator stated that the revitalization program is aimed to generate vocational schools graduates in becoming job creators, not job seekers.

In realizing this aim, this training’s objectives were: 1) to develop school fruit garden in vocational schools for elevating nutritional status of students, teachers, and communities surrounding the schools; 2) to develop networks as resource sharing tools among vocational schools; 3) to increase the unity of vocational schools for strengthening the independency of vocational schools.

The training was carried out in several sessions, including field trips to two model vocational schools i.e. SMKN 1 Pacet and SMKN 1 Cibadak.  Training materials presented and the resource persons were: 1) Overview of SMARTS-BE program (Dr Supriyanto); 2) The Use of Genetic Resources in Developing Intensive School Fruit Garden (Dr Supriyanto); 3) Analysis of Soil Fertility and Fertilizers to Develop Intensive School Fruit Garden (Dr Dwi Putro Tejo Baskoro); 4) Analysis of Land Suitability (Dr Omo Rusdiana); 5) Integrated Pest Management in Intensive School Fruit Garden (Dr Abdul Munif); 6) Technique of Setting Up Fruit Plants in Potted Media (Tabulampot); 7) Practical works on Fruit Trees Planting (Dr Supriyanto); 8) Practical works on Setting Up Potted Fruit Plants (Mr Surapati SP); 9) Practical works on Integrated Pest Management (Dr Abdul Munif); 10) Practical works on Making Lemon Juice (Mr Omit Sumitra); and 11) Practical works on Making Fruity and Aromatherapy Perfume Formulation (Dr Supriyanto).

Pretest and posttest were also conducted to measure the success of the training.  The pretest result was 46 of 100 in average, and in the posttest became 92 of 100 in average.  This means that the training was conducted successfully.

In finalizing the training, the participants testified that they all had new insights toward their school environment and wanted to immediately go back to their schools to implement their new knowledge. Furthermore, the participants expected that in the near future the Centre would hold similar trainings to enrich their schools’ environment. (sis/sy)
