Vunimono High School Headboy, Mohammed Zubair, is looking forward to studying at the Fiji National University (FNU). The 18-year-oId from Nausori wishes to further his education in the field of Information Technology (IT) at the institution.
“I would rather choose FNU than any other University because it is my nation’s pride and my nation’s university. I am very thankful to the team for being here to impart to us the knowledge we require for our future,” Zubair said.
The Vunimono High School Year 13 student was grateful to FNU for visiting his secondary school.
FNU’s Career Discovery for High School Students’ team visited Vunimono High School, Baulevu High School, Noco Secondary School, Rewa Secondary School, Waidina College and Bau Central College today.
“Today’s Career Discovery session was very informative, it allowed students to know more about FNU,” Zubair further stated.
“Some of the students at our school do not have internet access, so this allowed them to become more knowledgeable about the institution.”
Waidina Secondary School students also utilised the discussion sessions to gain further advice from the College representatives on the programmes and entry requirements.
Vunimono High School Principal, Bijen Singh, said the students looked forward to receiving information from the FNU College representatives. Singh is also a former Vunimono High School student.
“The students were very eager to receive first-hand information from the FNU team. As teachers, we wish to see our students successful in their chosen study fields, and later finding a decent job,” Singh highlighted.
“This is my second year as the principal, and this school is very near and dear to my heart because I am an ex-student of this school. Being an administrator and the head of school is an honour and privilege for me.”
“Career awareness is very important to our students as they will be choosing their career paths. Career choice begins in Year 11 when students choose their subjects, and this continues onto tertiary studies as they pursue further studies aligned to their ambitions.”
The high school visits commenced in the Central Division on 19 June and will continue until 30 June. This will be followed by the Western Division from 3-14 July, and the North from 17-28 July 2023.
Virtual sessions will be conducted for maritime schools in the first week of August.
