A dream came true for a couple who together got postgraduate diplomas at the University of the South Pacific yesterday.

Bal Ram Krishna graduated with Postgraduate Diploma in Science while spouse Muneshwari Nandan Krishna, graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education.

Mr and Mrs Krishna said they were very fortunate to have a supportive family who played a big role in their graduation.

“We have three children and because of them we are here,” Mr Krishna said.

“We both hold a vice principal position in our respective schools which comes with various responsibilities along with our studies and children.

“It was never easy for us to come this far especially because I teach in Tailevu and my wife teaches in Baulevu and we have to live separately to continue the work we do at the school.”

Ms Krishna said her motivation was to develop professionalism to raise her skills and academic ability at a high standard.

“We make sacrifices for our children to have a better future and know that their parents are there to give them all the best things possible.

“This graduation means a lot for us as a family because without the understanding, the help and support from them, we would not be here holding Postgraduate certificates in our hands,” Ms Krishna said.

Mr Krishna, who was proud to walk across the stage with tears in his eyes, said after 20 years meant the world to him.
