Ed­u­ca­tion does not end here, seek higher ed­u­ca­tion, the Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, Arts and Her­itage Ma­hen­dra Reddy urged Montfort Tech­ni­cal In­sti­tute grad­u­ates yes­ter­day. Mr Reddy was speak­ing to 42 grad­u­ates at the in­sti­tute in Savusavu. “Let me also re­mind you that your ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing does not end here, in fact it is just the be­gin­ning,” Mr Reddy told “Do not stop up­grad­ing your qual­i­fi­ca­tion. it is not enough to sim­ply try and get by in life as that does not move the world for­ward.

“But rather, you must strive to ex­cel in ev­ery­thing you do, that is ex­cel­lence in ev­ery task, large or small.” The grad­u­ates shed a few tears as the “O

Hail Thee Montfort” echoed through the grad­u­a­tion venue.

They bade farewell to the in­sti­tu­tion that had trained and housed them for the past two years. “You are all great in your own right and you need to re­alise that to dream big,” he said. “Re­mem­ber that the rep­u­ta­tion of Montfort Tech­ni­cal In­sti­tute de­pends on the rep­u­ta­tion of those it has ed­u­cated in the wider com­mu­nity. “There­fore, each one of you carry the name of this es­teemed in­sti­tu­tion and your suc­cess in the so­ci­ety will de­pict suc­cess for this es­teemed in­sti­tute and build on its rep­u­ta­tion.”
