One of the region’s premiere music festival has finally arrived, with an impressive line-up of local and international musical talent to orchestrate a prodigious show, the heart of Fest’Napuan is the centre stage.
This year, with the generous sponsorship of the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) through its carpentry trainers and students, the Fest’Napuan centre stage was extended to cater for diverse and vibrant musical acts.
Working in collaboration with the Fest’Napuan committee and long-term construction team, APTC carpentry trainer Gail Tamakam remarked, “It’s always a pleasure involving our students in such community projects to demonstrate their community-minded values and expose them to real working environments.”
Among the APTC students are two female students, Riria Taukarawa from Kiribati and Sulami Losevati Resture from Tuvalu, who are working hard to promote opportunities for women in the carpentry trade.
Advancing gender equality has been a recurrent theme at each Fest’Napuan, and this has now extended into festival construction.
The Fest’Napuan committee was pleased with the work done by APTC alongside construction team Morrey Fred and his staff and thanked APTC for the generous support.
The committee would like to wish APTC’s Certificate III students every success in completing their studies.
