Late last month 8 students supported by the Geelong Viqueque Friendship Schools and Geelong Friends of Viqueque graduated from the Catholic Teachers’ College in Bacau. Margie Beck, who is the Registrar, reported that it was a very lovely day. The College used the renovated Mercado, and even though there was heavy rain, no one got wet!
The students all asked Margie to pass on their thanks and gratitude for the support given to them during their three years in Baucau. Likewise the College wishes to pass on their thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to fund these students. Two more teachers will graduate next year adding to the pool of people who are making a difference in Timor Leste.
