The National University of Samoa was a place of joyous celebration on Wednesday this week.
After the Foundation students graduated last week, this time it was the students of Technical and Vocational Training Programmes who stepped up to the podium to be congratulated for their hard work at the end of the academic year.
More than 400 graduates received certificates and diplomas in front of parents, families and friends who came to witness the special celebration.
There were tears of joy, laugher and plenty of happiness to be shared among the students and their supporters.
The Managing Director of the Samoa Water Authority, Seugamaalii Jammie Sa’ena, was the guest speaker. She congratulated the students and urged them to do their best with the skills they had acquired.
“This is just the beginning, never stop looking for opportunities to further your education,” she said. “Never stop looking to increase your knowledge base.”
