Greetings your Eminence and fellow Apifo'ou Family!
This is the last week of the final exams for Levels 1 - 5. Level 7 are on study break prior to their external exams which will kick off next Tuesday. Since the focus this time is on the exams, there are very few activities going on at the college. Last Tuesday, our Form 6 exam students had a Day of Recollection at Lilo 'i Tafa'anga, Veitongo. This was part and parcel of efforts to complete the equation of success for all students:
students' efforts + teachers' efforts + parents' efforts + God = guaranteed success.
Level 6 Recollection Day
Dr. Leonaitasi Hoponoa has been actively involved at the college this year, particularly in the field of Human Development. The school is richly blessed with his expertise and experience. He facilitated the Recollection Day for the exam students.
The final exams for Levels 1 - 5 are coming to a close this week. It's heartening to see the students giving their very best to these exams.
Santa Claus arrived early at the college with tools offered by the World Bank via the Set Project within the Ministry of Education. The 3 Sections within TVET, Electrical, Carpentry, and Automobile, each received tools according to their own trade.
It was a blessed day for the college yesterday as the Coordinators of the Volunteer Project, Fonomanu & 'Unaloto Lolohea, visited us. They're currently on a break from their busy schedule back home and they thought the place to find rest is home!
While they're here with their friend Lianne, 'Unaloto & Fonomanu wanted to take a look at some of the Projects that they have funded here at the college.
This is an annual event that the Principals' Association together with the MoE organised for all the Prefects of the various secondary schools on Tongatapu. This is part and parcel of our efforts to promote safe, healthy and conducive environment for all our students. Needless to say, Prefects are a vital link within that endeavor.
As Chairperson of the Tonga Principals' Association, part of my key responsibilities is to work together with my fellow principals, the government, and all key stakeholders.
Seen above is the Honorable Minister for Health, Dr. Saia Piukala, delivering the keynote address. Seen below and the next photos are souvenir photos with the Prefects from the different schools. Below are the Head Prefects with the officials.

Please continue to keep our students in your prayers as they (Levels 6 & 7) embark on their external exams starting next Tuesday.
