Students complete 16-week training for jobs

Youth & Careers

THE Don Bosco Technical School in Port Moresby has awarded certificates to 160 students who attended an employment-oriented short-term course.
The employment-oriented skills development training was conducted over 16 weeks from July.
It offered training in house wiring and installation, metal fabrication and welding, motor vehicle technology and basic computing. School rector Father Angel Sanchez said the group was different compared to the past 16.
The group consists of “students from all walks of life”, including two Catholic priests.
There was also a Persian refugee, Sajad Ajari, who took up house wiring and installation. But he was forced to return to Manus just before the end of the course.
Some of the students were parents themselves who “have the willingness and determination to learn and go back to the rudiments of schooling”.
Student Christel Ravusiro received the excellence award in motor vehicle technology.
Principal Martin Dai challenged the graduates to strive to become “good Christians and honest citizens” and live with “joy and optimism”.
