Curious students of Labasa College did not miss the opportunity to gather information they needed while at the Fiji National University (FNU) Open Day yesterday.

Year 12 student, Siliva Drauna, one of the hundreds who converged at the Civic Centre said the event this year was different from the past.

Silivia said FNU’s display, practical sessions and competitions for students to test their skills were impressive.

“This helped them to think about the opportunities they could pursue at the institution,” she said.

FNU student Josefa Kaukimoce said the hosting of the event  over two days was a sign of the growing demands from schools to make the university their number one choice for tertiary education.

“All the information is provided and our experienced lecturers and heads of schools are here to give proper advice to all students,” Mr Kaukimoce said.

“Once students grasp this information they will be able to make informed choices and decisions for their future career.

“When I was in high school, we never had this open day, so for me this is a big benefit for these school students,” he said.

Labasa Campus Stakeholders Advisory board chairman, Tui Macuata, Ratu Wiliame Katonivere urged parents not to force children to pursue programmes which they were not comfortable with.

“The open day provides real opportunities to you all over the next two days to get in touch face to face with staff and know the programmes that are on offer,” Ratu Wiliame said.
