Dr Rosiana Lagi, Tuvalu Campus Director reads to eager primary school students.

The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Tuvalu Campus was recently engaged in a new reading programme for Tuvalu’s primary school students.

Dr. Rosiana Lagi, Tuvalu Campus Director confirmed that young prospective students visited the Campus requesting to learn to improve their reading during the Christmas school holidays. 

Dr. Lagi said the books were donated by relatives of the children in New Zealand and she willingly used her own time to read to the enthusiastic youngsters. 

“An after-school reading programme will commence for primary school students at the USP Tuvalu Campus and the purpose is merely to encourage young people to read,” Dr Lagi said.

She stated that, “Once students develop the interest to read they may be able to read independently and develop their literacy and critical thinking skills”.

Dr Lagi further commented that one of the major purposes of establishing the Tuvalu Campus is to address the needs and aspirations of the people of Tuvalu. 

“As such, the Tuvalu Campus is not just focusing on the current students but also on our prospective students who will become the leaders of Tuvalu in the near future,” she added.
