TEMPO.CO, Jakarta -A high school in Surabaya city held a variety of school introduction programs for its new school year prior to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

In the future, the learning management system at SMAN 16 Surabaya will utilize a variety of online media and spread each school subject into 20 minute online courses, which will be followed by “Q and A” sessions through social media platforms to help students spend less on internet packages.
