Treat for graduates

FIJI students who studied in various Australian universities under the Australian Government scholarships and have graduated last year were hosted to a cocktail at the residence of the acting Australian High Commissioner, Glenn Miles, on Thursday.

About 30 students were part of the reception where they shared motivating stories of how they learnt and became better people after graduating from their fields of studies.

The graduates attained qualifications from certificates to PhD level after studying for three to four years in different universities in Australia.

Some of the programs were agriculture, economics, engineering and medicine.

"The level of knowledge that we heard from the students that went across, they now have a wide experience in agriculture, in public service, those skills contribute to the learning environment," Mr Miles said.

"Learning is never a one way street. It's an act of communicating and often we learn as much from your students as much as the students learn from you. I think this is what it is all about".
