The National Fisheries College in Kavieng, New Ireland province, is setting the standard for other tertiary institutions in the country with its well-kept campus.

Situated just outside Kavieng, the college, owned and operated by the National Fisheries Authority, prides itself on its high standard of facilities.

The students have good dormitories, the campus is kept spic and span, messing facilities are excellent, and high-speed broadband internet ensures that the students are kept up to date with what is happening around the world with regards to fishing.

Last Friday, the first batch of fisheries and marine resources degree graduands, under the programme run by the University of Natural Resources and Environment, received their scrolls from Chancellor Sir Rabbie Namaliu on campus.

NFA managing director Sylvester Pokajam said the college was an institution his organisation was proud of.

“We are the only fisheries agency in the region that has a fisheries college as one of its operational divisions,” he said.

“This makes us unique in the region but it also provides us with a significant challenge to gain a cost benefit from our investment in education and training.

“ I wish to say that, looking about the buildings and grounds of the National Fisheries College, I am proud of the manner in which these facilities are presented and maintained. “It conveys an air of professionalism and organisation and is a tribute to the commitment of the National Fisheries College services team and our collective contractors.

“I thank you for this.

“It is also a tribute to the commitment of the NFA board to support to the programmes of the National Fisheries College and the associated services and maintenance.

“We all have a collective responsibility to ensure this support is recognised by all concerned through the continued delivery of high quality and cost-effective training and education here at the National Fisheries College.”
