MORE than 60 National Training and Productivity Centre apprentices graduated at the Fiji National University on Friday.

The students walked away with a certificate each for the various courses they took.

FNU vice-chancellor, Dr Ganesh Chand said the apprentices had finally reaped the fruits of their labour.

He said the school was grateful to the trainees for their efforts and for accomplishing such a significant milestone.

"The university is confident that you have absorbed the ethos of our institution and understand not only the value of learning but also the importance that we as an institution place upon ethics as a vital element of modern professional practice; of using your knowledge to pursue your careers with honesty and integrity.

"We have the standards high and believe you have been taught how to maintain them, to contribute to a better society," Dr Ganesh said.

Overall winner and best apprentice of the year, Theodore John Danford said no words could express the way he felt.

"This is a new chapter and a new beginning. This is where everything starts.

"I'm really excited, I just want to thank God, my family, teachers, friends and colleagues for their support," Mr Danford said.
