THE much anticipated Divine Word University (DWU) annual cultural day attracted a large number of Madang town residents to the university’s Madang campus.
This year for the first time, students from the new Hela and Jiwaka provinces proudly strutted their stuff; accompanied by proud parents who travelled the highlands highway just to be part of the event.
DWU Vice President Student Affairs, Ted Alau, hailed the occasion as a success and highly commended the students.
“Those who attended left with good memories” Mr Alau said. “I noticed that many of our overseas visitors took lots of pictures and they will have something to show friends and wantoks later.
“The dancing groups from the provinces were special and spectacular. The skill and artistry in the presentations were of high quality.
“I congratulate the students for a job well done,” Mr. Alau said.
He also acknowledged the contributions from staff, an example of good community service.
