The Samoan Fale at the National University of Samoa was the venue of a special occasion on Friday night.

The event was the celebration of the hard work of the 26 graduates who were presented with certificates from the Chairman and Board of Trustees of the Leadership Samoa Programme for Leadership Samoa 2015 Graduation.

There was a full house with all the families and friends of the graduates who gathered to the momentous occasion.  The ceremony started with an invocation led by Pastor Samoa Unoi. 

Australian High Commissioner, Sue Langford and the caretaker Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, who is also the Patron of Leadership Samoa, congratulated the graduates.

Seulgee Samuelu spoke on behalf of the graduates to thank their families and friends for the support and the Leadership Samoa Programme for the great opportunity given to them to extend their leadership skills and knowledge.

With the skills and knowledge they’ve learnt from the program, the 26 graduates are now ready to apply their leadership skills in their different workplaces.
