GRADUATING students of Kopkop College in Port Moresby have been encouraged to make use of the knowledge they have acquired and to take
the art of decision-making seriously.
The acting vice-chancellor of the University of Papua New Guinea, Vincent Malaibe, told the 26 graduating students on Friday that thinking and making informed decisions was “very serious business”.
“We need the young generation of this country to have serious and responsible minds because the future of this country lies in your hands,” he said.
“Kopkop College has given you sufficient knowledge and it is up to you to make use of it.
“Apply what you have learnt because knowledge without application is useless.”
Chief Ombudsman Michael Dick encouraged the students to be honest. “Always make honesty your habit and pray every day,” he said. “Nothing is more important in life than to be honest, self-disciplined and a God-fearing person.”
Dick told the students to never lose focus of what they wanted in life.
The school presented students with attainment certificates and academic awards.
Tauna Vele, a science student, was named dux, with Sabina Buskens runner-up.
