USP Staff and Fetuvalu High School Students and Staff at the USP Tuvalu Campus

USP Tuvalu Campus began with their career counseling on Friday with about 30 students and teachers of Fetuvalu High School.  The school applied for the School Based Preliminary Programme offered by the Pacific TAFE at the beginning of this month. 

According to the Campus Director Dr. Rosiana Lagi, the main purpose of the event was to familiarise the students and staff about the courses that are offered before they choose which programme is relevant for them.   In addition, it also allowed the students to think critically about their future career before they select the courses and programme that are aligned to their interest. 

According to the newly appointed Principal of the school, Mr. Pati Eka said that he was happy and amazed at the opportunity that the USP can offer for the future of Tuvalu. 

Ms Jesmin Eliesa who aspires to be an Environmentalist stated that she was motivated by the Campus Director’s presentation. She said that now she has made up her mind about what career she wants to take up when she leaves school and also know the required courses and marks.

Ms Tagivasa Timothy who hopes to become a lawyer added that she found the session great as she was able to make up her mind about her future career.  At first, she wanted to become a doctor, but she found Chemistry and Physics difficult and did not know that there were other options.  Attending the session today helped her understand the other opportunities available.

Ms Inge Koepke Science Teacher stated that the session was a good motivation for the students as they are able to know the programmes that are available at the USP and select the one that best suits their interest and their future profession.  

Apart from enlightening the students about the programmes and courses available, the students and teachers were informed of the other available services the campus provides to ensure students acquire a quality education – these were the Student Learning Support, IT Support (Moodle, React, Computer Lab and Wi Fi) and Library services (IRS).

The Campus Director stated that the USP Tuvalu Campus was honoured to host the students and to help them explore the educational opportunities they have and to choose wisely for a brighter future for the students and Tuvalu as a whole.
