Timothy reaches milestone in education

Timothy Salale Moananu reached a milestone in his life recently when he attained his Bachelor of Engineering and graduated with honors in forestry from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.  

Timothy started school at Marist Brothers School Mulivai Year 1-6 and then moved to Vaitele Primary School YeaR 7-8. In 2008, he made it to Samoa College and upon completion of his studies he graduated from National University of Samoa and went to the University of Canterbury. 

He is the son of Alaiasa Sepulona Moananu and Fogalelea Moananu from Falefa, Lufilufi, Falevao, Sagone and Luatuanuu and they currently reside in Vaiteleuta. 

According to his father, Timothy is currently employed by Land Transport Authority since July this year, as a principal engineer and is also a member of Samoa Worship Centre Church youth leadership. 

“My children are mostly accountants and commerce students but he decided to take science and try in other field. 

“I challenged him and informed him that he will not have any help at home with his studies but we will wait no matter how long it takes for him to pursue Engineering.

“Now he has a degree and am so thankful, and all glory to God for his achievement,” he said. 

Timothy is 24-years-old and is the fourth of seven children.
