疫病大流行期間 峇里島學生可用椰子繳學費

 

印尼峇里島一所餐飲管理學院已開始接受椰子做為學費支付,因為學生因冠狀病毒大流行而面臨經濟困難。

合眾國際社報導,當「金星一號餐旅學院」的學生用椰子繳學費時,校方將用它們提煉成初榨椰子油。

做為替代選擇,學生也可以用辣木和雷公根等其他選定的熱帶植物葉子來抵學費,這些葉子可以被製成草藥皂出售,為學院籌款。

金星一號餐旅學院校長普特拉告訴當地媒體《Bali Puspa新聞》表示,「原本學費繳交分3期,第一期繳50%,第二期20%,第三期則是30%」。

Students In Bali Can Pay Tuition Fees With Coconuts Amid Pandemic

 

A hospitality college in Bali, Indonesia, has begun accepting coconuts as tuition payment as students face economic hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

When students at the Venus One Tourism Academy pay their fees with coconuts, the college will use them to harvest virgin coconut oil, UPI reported.

 

Alternatively, students can pay with leaves from other selected tropical plants which can be converted into herbal soap and be sold to raise money for the academy.

 

"Initially, the tuition payment scheme was paid in three installments, with the first installment at 50 percent, the second 20 at percent, and the third at 30 percent," Venus One Tourism Academy’s director Wayan Pasek Adi Putra told local news outlet Bali Puspa News.
