The member for Ialibu Pangia and Former Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has allocated K2 million to subsidize the tuition fees for Ialibu-Pangia students who are attending various institutions in the country and overseas.

This morning I had an interesting and lovely ride on the new school bus service for our school children. Listening to their stories and watching how happy they are to ride on the bus without their parents having to worry about bus fare and their safety is so rewarding. I had a chance to tell them about some of the signage on the bus to not litter, no graffiti, no harassment, no chewing Buai and spitting. I went on Route 5 which starts from Gerehu and ends at Manu auto port and returns on same route. Tomorrow I will go on other routes.
