Fiji National University (FNU) Dean of the College of Hu­manities and Education Pro­fessor Unaisi Nabobo Baba said there was an atmosphere of positiv­ity and excitement during the FNU Open Day at its Natabua Campus in Lautoka on Friday.

The event for all campuses based in the Western Division was held after a lapse of two years.

“In the Western Division, Natabua is the centre, all our campuses and colleges in the West are here today to present including the National Training Productivity Centre (NTPC),” she said.

“So, today is about giving that in­formation to people, to students, to their parents regarding my College of Humanities in Education. We also have the different disciplines but right across the other colleges, they are all represented here today, as well as having Nasinu, staff be­ing on hand to explain the many things we are doing for the first time in the School of Education.”

She said there were new pro­grammes being showcased during the Open Day.

“Some of the new programmes from my college are the Post Grad­uate diploma programmes, we have the Master’s programmes in all our subjects, in education, in history in geography, they are all displayed for languages we are displaying as well and giving information on the new Postgraduate diploma pro­grammes as well as our Bachelors programmes,” she said.

“In Nasinu we have our music programmes, hairdressing, our TV programmes and our new Bachelor of Media and Communication.

“We have been asked by the min­istry to do a conversion programme for teachers in secondary school who would like to be retrained to do primary teaching, they can also take our new conversion pro­gramme,” she said.

“Then of course we have short courses that we do for music and for graphic design.

“Right now in Naitasiri we’ve just completed four courses in sew­ing, jewellery making, hairdress­ing and graphic design, we also do that in the communities all the way through to Certificates three and four.”

She said there was an influx of secondary schools travelling from afar and members of the public at the Open Day.
