BAMBRA Primary School is one of the remote schools run by the Assembly of God Church in Maprik district, East Sepik.
According to the deputy headmistress Mary Nati, the school has seen its ups and downs but the parents and the community continue to stand together to see that the school succeeds.
“The school has a very committed and hardworking board, staff and parents. Everyone stands together and works hard in seeing that the school runs smoothly,” Nati said.
She made the comment during the visit of Maprik MP John Simon, town mayor Paul Dingu and the Bumbita-Muhian LLG president during the weekend.
“These school buildings have been built from the hard work and sweat of the parents. We thank our MP for the K20,000 assistance as we have used these funds to build the permanent double classroom.”
She said the school still needed the support from the MP.
She urged the people of Mamblep, the parents and the Maprik community to take ownership in order to see changes and development.
“Education is a shared responsibility, it’s for us all. In Bambra, even though there are teachers from different denominations teaching, they all fit right into the environment because the spirit is good,” Nati said.
She thanked Simon for the support not only to the school but also to the community, in terms of fixing the road.
She said with the road being fixed, teachers and staff were now picked up and dropped off at their doorsteps without carrying their belongings and walking for hours.
