Secondary school students during the Open Day at USP Emalus campus.

The University of the South Pacific’s Emalus Campus Open Day in Vanuatu on 5 August, 2016, was a huge success with about 1000 students, parents and members of the public attending. 

With the theme ‘USP – Shaping Your Future’, the event attracted a large crowd to the Campus that was not only keen to learn about the University’s programmes and services, but also participated in the various activities. 

Head of the School of Law, Professor Eric Colvin, officially opened the event and encouraged current and potential students to ‘think about USP’s Emalus Campus when thinking of furthering their education at University level’. 

“USP Emalus Campus in Port Vila is one of the best campuses of The University of the South Pacific in the region.  The learning environment and the cultural mix that you get here is second to none, apart from the Laucala Campus in Suva, Fiji, said Professor Colvin. 

One of the highlights of the day was the one-hour Moot Court Competition finale organised by the School of Law, at the Campus Conference Room. 

Other attractions included the famous and longest annual float parade in Port Vila, a Chinese Lion Dance, the Debate Final, and a Public Speaking Competition for secondary schools, to name a few. 

In the evening the crowd braved the rain to be entertained by the most spectacular event of the day with the Pacific Cultural Performances that marked the end of the event.
