The purpose of holding an Opening Day is to acquaint learners and their parents with the programme. This is primarily an informational meeting where application forms are distributed, but some form of entertainment is also encouraged to engage your audience. Motivational speakers and/or talented returning learners are a great way to demonstrate potential success for interested learners. Is your programme offering multiple services to your learners or the community? If so, this is the opportunity to give a brief overview of each department of your programme to shape the full picture of your organization as a whole. Remember, you want to encourage FULL learner participation for optimal success, and convey the attendance requirements very clearly so that learners and parents fully understand what's involved in being an ikamvanite.
