By Lucy Napitalai

Boroko, PM, Papua New Guinea, 21 November 2019 -- The 18th graduation rites ceremony of Don Bosco Technological Institute (DBTI) was held at the DBTI gymnasium, on 21 November 2019. It was a farewell for the last batch of 71 graduates with a Bachelor’s in Education – Technical program under the affiliation of the Divine Word University. DBTI also witnessed its first 87 graduates of the three-year Diploma program.

The graduation had the theme “Inspiring change in society through servant leadership”.In the keynote address, Mr. Dagia Aka, the Lasallian Youth Ministry Program Coordinator and the 2017 recipient of the Young Man of Honour Award, encouraged the graduates to be of service to others and be the change in their own families and society.

DBTI’s first diploma graduates were in the following 7 technologies; Information Technology, Electrical, Electronics and Communication, Instrumentation, Maintenance Fitting and Machining, Metal Fabrication and Welding and Automotive.

Rector and President of DBTI, Fr. Alexander Garces, SDB, thanked Divine Word University for the sixteen years of partnership. Mrs. Cecelia N’Drower, Divine Word University’s registrar was on hand to receive a plaque from the Chairman of DBTI’s Governing Board, Fr. Alfred Maravilla, SDB, as a token of appreciation. Moses Sillih, a recipient of the award for best in Instrumentation technology commented that he was proud to be one of the pioneers of DBTI’s Diploma program. “I give credit to the institution not only for the knowledge and skills but most importantly the values and formation that I received” added Sillih. “I was always happy to offer my service freely to others and naturally my time for study fell into place”, a recipient of the best in technology award and the St. Dominic Savio Service award Henry Chepon said.

Finally, George Wilson the outgoing SRC president in his speech stated, “It was a climb, our stay in DBTI was a mountain, but we managed to reach the peak because we all helped each other climb.” He ended by reminding his fellow Bosconians to put to use the words of Don Bosco, “do your ordinary duties extraordinarily well.”
