Fond memories of Madang

National, Normal

TWO health professionals from Vanuatu who studied at the Divine Word University have left with positive impressions of the campus and Madang province.
Port Vila-based nursing educator, Adel Tamata, and Santo-based midwife, Jenny Matlock, spoke highly of DWU and Madang as they departed for Vanuatu last week.
Ms Tamata enrolled in the diploma in teaching programme while Ms Matlock took up the diploma in management course administered by the faculty of flexible learning (FFL).
Their studies were sponsored by the French Agency for Development through the Vanuatu ministry of health and were the third batch to come to DWU through the programme.
The two outgoing students said DWU courses and the delivery met their requirements while the environment at the university ensured they studied well.
The two nurses commended the tremendous support they received from the staff of the FFL and the DWU in general.
Ms Tamata and Ms Matlock said before they came to PNG for studies earlier this year, they were warned of crime but they found things to be different on the ground in Madang.
The two nurses said since their arrival for studies in February, they had enjoyed the company of staff and students of DWU and the public of Madang.
Ms Tamata and Ms Matlock said if they had a chance to return for studies, they would not hesitate to come back to DWU.
