Sixteen teachers of various subjects who have completed “The first steps in mathematics” course, were also presented with certificates by Dr Rolph Payet, president and vice-chancellor of UniSey.

Ms Shirley Marie, acting Dean of the Faculty of Sciences at UniSey, noted that teachers who had followed the Bachelor of Education( BEd) primary courses had scored particularly high - an average 98.6%.

Dr Payet noted with pleasure that the director of Schools, Odile Octave, among those present, had been his teacher.

He said UniSey greatly values the collaboration with Edith Cowan University.
Noting that the books are the best resources for learning, Dr Payet said that in small islands as Seychelles we often tend to feel isolated, but fortunately, the Internet has opened the world for us. 

He said the connection of fibre optic cables in June will allow more direct communication and possibly on-line lectures with fellow educational establishments, such as Edith Cowan.

Dr Payet expressed the hope that the Australian university will be represented when the first cohort of students graduate after the third year of UniSey.

Expressing a vote of thanks, Rosiana Jules, childhood studies coordinator, said the Faculty of Education recognises the challenges of teaching and teachers can count on UniSey for support.

The books were presented to Dr Payet by Dr Fiona Budgen, one of two lecturers from Edith Cowan, who are now returning home.
