Twenty-year-old Ulalia Vakawaraivalu could only wish her father was still alive to see her receive her Diploma yesterday.

Ms Vakawaraivalu was among the 36 students who graduated from Corpus Christi Teachers College.

Her father, Mikaele Vakawaraivalu died last month after a short illness.

She said her father had always been her pillar of strength since she started her education.

“He always wanted me to become a teacher. Today I finally achieved it and could only wish if he could be back here with me even if only for a day to see me,” said an emotional Ms Vakawaraivalu.

“He’s always been very supportive and always encouraging me. Today I just can’t stop thinking of him considering the struggles I went through with him during the last three years.”

Acting Permanent Secretary for Education Kelera Taloga told the graduates of the realities and demands of the teaching profession.

“The world out there is highly competitive and you will need adjustments in your attitude, your mindset, and your commitment to successfully fit into the culture of the world of work,” Mrs Taloga said.
