STUDENTS from The National Youth Band celebrated their graduation this week at the National Youth Centre in Suva.

The National Youth Centre provides vocational, government-funded training to students from a variety of backgrounds and it aims to supply them knowledge and skills to improve their future employability.

Such courses include carpentry and agricultural training among others.

Band manager Saiasi Fuli noted that the event was a double celebration, the graduation of 33 graduates and the intake of 44 new students being welcomed into the two-year course.

"There is no minimum age and lots of the kids involved did not finish school. They have musical talent though and that is why the government is supporting the school in training them, utilising their talent for music and creating employment opportunities for them," Mr Fuli said.
