During the 12th graduation ceremony of Rarongo Theological College, East New Britain Province, renowned national figure Sir Moi Avei gave a motivational speech to the graduating class.
Prominent attendees, parents, and the forty-five graduating students were present at the event on Sunday, November 19th when the 76-year-old Sir Moi Avei enthralled the audience with his powerful works.
Renowned for his wisdom, integrity, and commitment to serving the country, he underlined the importance of the graduates’ chosen paths while applauding the graduates’ diligence and fortitude.
“The future is yours; take it with both hands. Your success in making a difference is now entirely in your hands. Your parents will expect a tangible return from their investment.”
Sir Moi Avei related his personal experiences, discussing the challenges he had faced and the lessons he had discovered along the way. He emphasized the significance of upholding one’s moral principles and using education to further the common good.
He commended Miriam Moses, a young woman from Milne Bay who successfully completed her Master’s Degree in Theology. Two other young women also graduated with diplomas in Theology.
“In the years to come, I hope to see more of your sisters’ graduate with flying colours. Our forefathers heavily involved female participation in the economy,” he said.
The occasion saw the graduates receive their certificates and awards in theology but in respective different programs.
