Preparing Your Future is this year’s NUS Open Day theme.
Held at Vaivase, 31 colleges were invited to come and participate in this year’s event and for children to tour around the campus to see which career they want to choose once they finish college year.
Guest speaker for the day was a representative from Business System Limited who is also the major sponsor for the NUS Open Day this year.
Assistant Manager of BSL Leeroy Feaunati who delivered the speech encourages the young ones to study at NUS under different programmes.
“We at Business Systems Ltd are very humbled to be the Major Sponsor for NUS Open Day 2016,” she said.
“It is our mantra to be helping and supporting all programs and activities that are geared towards children and a school because we believe our contribution in shaping a better future and a better Samoa is through investing in children of today as well as schools.
“We are the longest serving stationary store in Samoa, and has committed to a number of partnerships with the Education Sector and our communities over the many decades to try and raise the quality of education not only through the products but also the services it provides.
“Today we are very proud to be alongside NUS in opening this important event, which sees our entire university opening its doors, and engaging with the many young and future leaders of our country and communities. BSL is fully in support of today’s open day program, as it is important for the younger students to be able to identify what profession or career path they can pursue once they reach university level. This long term planning is an opportunity to better prepare future decisions, therefore improving the quality of education on an individual basis ensuring they achieve their future goals and dreams more effectively.
“For NUS Open Day, we sincerely hope that our support and involvement will have provided an opportunity for all the students and potential students in the future to have a fair idea of all the programs available here in the National University of Samoa.
“We hope they see the light; the light that the education provided in Universities overseas is also made available right here on our shores, here in Le papaigalagala.”
Vice Chancellor and President of NUS Fui Asofou Soo encourage the students to use their time wisely.
“Use the time and the opportunity that you have been given to come here to the NUS Open Day wisely,” he said. “This opportunity will not come again as the saying goes “If you miss the bus the bus miss you” so therefore use the time wisely.
“Choose wisely and as you are prepared for the next step of your educational life you must know what you want to do and what you want to become in the future.
“So therefore learn more as you go touring different faculties here at NUS and ask as many questions as you can and you want while you are here so that you will know exactly what you want to do before you come to NUS.”
