Default High Comm. from Vanuatu visits Vanuatu female painting students

Here is a story I put together about a special visit from the Vanuatu High Commissioner on the all female class that had seven female students from Vanuatu.

http://www.aptc.edu.au/news/APTC%20N...er_220911.html

I like to do these stories because in an indirect way they contribute to the image of our industry and the professional development taking place.

Good article Michael. Sounds like your students were very proud of the visit.

Will say that when I saw "High Commissioner from Vanuatu" it made me briefly envision someone out of a "Star Wars" movie. No disrespect intended.

It is an ambassador for countries under the commonwealth. If the High Commissioner for Vanuatu was in the states he would be called an Ambassador.

Michael, would love to hear how you ended up in Fiji. Maybe someday you can share that story with us.

Thanks Wolfgang, I posted one called "How I got to Fiji" it ended up being long winded and boring.

You probably regret suggesting that now.
