THE Japanese Government has released air tickets to two teachers who will go on for further studies in Japan.
A short handover ceremony at the Japanese embassy in Honiara last week officially sealed the trip.
The two female recipients Grace Dakatia Maemae and Helmah Maena Ray Jack, will travel to Japan this week for further teaching studies under the Japanese government sponsorship for one year and 6 months.
A statement from the Japanese embassy revealed the two will first take on Japanese Language training at Kobe University for the first six months and later move on to Hyogo University for the main course of their studies.
Speaking during the official handover ceremony Japanese Ambassador Nakajima Satoshi congratulated the two teachers, saying they have shown true excellence in obtaining scholarships.
Mr Satoshi stressed that human resources development is the key element for the development of any country in the world.
He said Japan can be one of the most evident examples that underline its significance in the economic and social development.
Therefore he said that so far Japan has provided nine scholarships for Solomon Islands teachers.
He explained the teacher training scholarship aims to provide teachers with an opportunity to learn the latest teaching methods in their respective specialized area at Japanese universities and thus help to improve the quality of education in Solomon Islands as a whole.
The two recipients have had relevant years of experience in the teaching sector and have also been accredited for their outstanding work in the service.
