Use opportunities wisely

Felix Chaudhary

PRESIDENT Ratu Epeli Nailatikau has lauded the free education commitment by the government, calling it an "education revolution".

Speaking at the University of Fiji graduation ceremony at Saweni in Lautoka on Friday, Ratu Epeli said the initiative was not only a paradigm shift for the country's education system but also created a level playing field for all Fijians.

"This unprecedented move by government is a shift from educating the elite to educating the entire nation; a shift towards making Fiji a smarter and knowledge-based society; and a shift towards providing better opportunities for all our people," said Ratu Epeli.

"No longer will our citizens who are seeking knowledge, skills and training be left behind because of economic disadvantage.

"Hence, I implore all Fijians to use these opportunities wisely.

"Every one of us must play our part in taking Fiji forward through education."

Scholarship recipients will work with senior academic staff on studies that could attain a Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Education qualification.
