Several of our TARD members are currently attending a Leadership Training Workshop which started yesterday (04/04/06) and runs until friday, at the University of the South Pacific in Suva.

The leadership training workshop is facilitated by the University of the South Pacific, Victoria University, and the Solomon Islands Students Association for about 50 Solomon Islands' students. According to the trainer, Dr Kabini Sanga, who is currently working at the University of Victoria in New Zealand, the workshop is aimed at training young aspiring Solomon Islands scholars and future leaders to become good leaders with integrity and leadership qualities. Over the week long workshop, students are expected to learn the ethics of good leadership, the qualities that a good leader should possess, the positive implications of leadership, and how we can apply leadership roles in our endeavours.

The workshop was launched yesterday night at the University of the South Pacific with a confirmed registration of about 50 students. This is the second of its kind to be organised for Solomon Islands students at USP. The first leadership workshop was carried out last year by the same trainer as well. During the closing stages of this workshop there will be a public lecture on leadership that is open to anyone. The training is free of charge.

The TARD group is committed to good leadership so we nominated several of our To'abaita students to attend that training on our behalf. Some of the To'abaita students who are currently attending that workshop on behalf of TARD are: Wilfred Atomea, Edward Danitofea, James I'ilu, Leny Konamauri, William Abuinao Fikutoa, and Trevor Maeda. We hope that the lessons learnt will be useful to our rural goals that we are aspiring to achieve.
