Graduating student farm­ers of Navuso Agriculture Technical School have been reminded to remain steadfast in their farming and to remember the sacrifices they have made thus far.

This was reiterated to the gradu­ating class of 2018 by Ministry of Agriculture Deputy Secretary Corporate Services and Planning, Vatimi Rayalu during the school’s recent graduation ceremony.

“Government continues to pro­vide an annual grant of $500,000 to the school to assist in the nurtur­ing of aspiring future farmers and today you have reaped the rewards of your dedication to this field,” said Mr Rayalu. Your efforts and sacrifice is being recognised today as you have persevered throughout your time spent here at Navuso.

“You have set the bench mark for your brothers who will follow suit by maintaining that honesty and continuing on to be where you are today,” he added.

Mr Rayalu emphasised to the ten (10) 4th Year graduating students to be mindful of their time spent at the technical school and to focus on their budding farming careers. “Your career path has just started, do not give in too easily to the hard­ships that you will face daily in your life.

“Look at that problem and hard­ship and try to find opportunities within those trying times.”

Navuso Agriculture Technical School Acting Principal, Mosese Kabakoro highlighted the new ini­tiatives and achievements made by the school such as receiving full recognition from the Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC), setting up relevant new courses similar to accredited courses at the Fiji National University (FNU) and the University of the South Pacific (USP) as well as plans for proper educational facilities to be constructed during the upcoming educational year.

“In the coming year, females will also be allowed to be educated in Muanise as we seek to promote in­clusion of women in agriculture to also consider taking up farming,” Mr Kabakoro said.

Navuso Agriculture Technical School has an existing student roll of 60 students currently attending the school studying and practicing different agricultural disciplines to boost their agriculture poten­tial.
