CONGRATULATIONS: Graduates Ta’a Logovae and To’afa Paiali’i show off their certificates.

Four students at the O Le Amosa o Savavau University celebrated sweet success on Friday.

The students were presented with certificates during a low-key ceremony after one year of study at the Vaitele-based University.

The Founder and President of the University; Aiono Dr. Fanaafi Le Tagaloa, said Friday was a proud moment for the graduates because they had overcome the challenges they faced to achieve success.

“We had eight students registered in the beginning and now only four are receiving certificates,” she said. “I want to congratulate them and say a big ‘fa’amalo’ to their families for their support.”

Aiono said there were many obstacles along the way but the students persevered.

“One of challenges we’ve faced since the establishment of this University is that most students are not able to pay their school fees. But we have been able to keep going and today is a very happy day for all of us.”

One of those proud students was Toafa Paiali’i.

“I want to thank my husband and my children for supporting me throughout,” she said.

“This has really helped me in building up myself in the Samoan Language and glory be to God for I know that He has a great plan for my life.”

As an adult student, Mrs. Paiali’i admits that it is not easy to juggle studies and her other roles – including being a mother.

“But I’m driven to go school every day,” she said. “I get excited and everyday I come to school expecting to receive and learn from my lecturers. Today, I’m so proud to have received this certificate from Dr. Aiono.”

Studying, she said, is a “commitment.”

“You have to do it, you have to make time. I have many commitments but I always make time available to attend as this has definitely not been wasted time for me.”

Another graduate, Ta’a Lagavae says the Le Amosa o Savavau University has something for everyone.

“This has been a great year,” Ta’a said.

“I have learnt something new every day about the Samoan culture and customs. Having Dr. Aiono around us every time is a blessing. I’m really looking forward to learning more next year.”
