Take pleasure in your work, says institute director


GRADUATES from the Jubilee Institute of Higher Education (JIHE) were encouraged to take pleasure in their work during the institute’s fifth graduation ceremony in Port Moresby recently.
JIHE director, Mathew Kuusa, while addressing the graduates, reminded them not to let work consume them, enjoy some time off and set realistic goals.
“Most importantly, make time for your family and friends as it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of a new working environment,” he said.
A total of 60 students graduated with diploma of education in primary teaching (pre-service) while five Lahara students graduated with bachelor of education in primary teaching (in-service).
Also at the graduation, 15 students from the business faculty graduated with diploma in business accounting.
For the pre-service graduates, Margareth Haihe received the academic award, Geyo Montz got the best teaching practice award and Dodo Pet received the professionalism award.
Awards for the in-service lahara students were a senior teacher from Bavaroko Primary School who got the academic award and the leadership award went to Peter Boli, who is Paglum Adventist Primary School deputy head teacher.
Kuusa said: “Education involves lifelong learning and lifelong learning is the reality of the modern world.”
Kuusa acknowledged the efforts of those who have contributed in helping the graduands on successfully achieving their certificates.
“We are here to acknowledge your efforts, to thank those who have made sacrifices on your behalf, to congratulate you on staying the course despite obstacles that may have come your way.” Kuusa expressed.
