A vision of EDUCATION for Samoa's largest island - the island paradise of Savai'i!


The Don Bosco Order of Salesian Brothers vision to open a school in Savaii is getting closer to being realised.
The Don Bosco College and Vocational School at Salelologa is expected to be opened next month, Father Sefo Mulipola said.


The school will be opened to any student interested in studying in Savaii, regardless of his/her denomination. The main purpose behind the school in Salelologa is to provide an educational facility for students in Savaii, said Father Mulipola.

This is excellent news for my brothers and sisters of Savai'i. From what I've read so far it seems as though the vast majority of educational opportunities are based in central Upolu. Politicians often forget that 25 percent of Samoa's overall population is also based in Savai'i, and that all Samoan children have the right to equal education. This is good news from our Don Bosco brothers, and I'm sure that every young person on the island of Savai'i is another step closer to prosperous educational opportunities.

One should not have to travel far to receive a descent education. With all the improvements in Western society; education should be accessed with relative ease.

This news is humbling for all residents of Savai'i; Samoa.
