Tokelau Students studying in Fiji, together with their families, were treated to a dinner by the Ulu o Tokelau Aliki Faipule Afega Gaualofa and Mrs Kilita Gaualofa. Faipule Afega was in Fiji for meetings with the Government of Fiji and to sign the Pacific Island Development Forum (PIDF) Charter.
He also had meetings with the USP Vice-Chancellor to explore extension of USP Satellites into the local schools and likewise having better support for students. Faipule Afega's discussions with Fiji's Minister of Foreign Affairs touched on immigration issues for Tokelauan students studying in Fiji and how this can reflect the strong ties between governments.
Faipule Afega conveyed well wishes from families and from members of the Council and encouraged the students to work hard and look to God for support.
The Ulu o Tokelau was to travel back to Samoa where he will be meeting the Prime Minister of the Independent State of Samoa and the President of French Polynesia. Tokelau is the current Chair of the Polynesian Leaders Group.
