IT WAS A case of double celebration for two students at the IT Sligo Conferring Ceremony.
Twins Nala and Naledi Shologu graduated with Biomedical Science degrees.
Natives of the Eastern Cape, South Africa, they are now going on to study as Biomedical Biotechnology.
Nala and Naledi have lived in Sligo for the past three years during the course of their studies at the IT, Ballinode.
They moved from South Africa to Letterkenny in 2002. Nala said: "I suppose it's a bit unusual to have twins studying the same thing, it's what we wanted to do."
"We will continue on and hopefully get an honours degree next year."
Naledi said everyone at the IT was very supportive. "I suppose it does help that we were both on the same course."
