After that famous explorer, william dampier renamed mussau to the st mathias island on 21 September, 1690 and the first adventist missionaries entered in 1930, mussau islands transformation has been as fascinating as its history.
In 2017, Boliu High Schools all purpose admin block was burnt to the ground.It was deeply felt by parents, students and alumni.Especially painful was that it was about to be converted from a high to secondary school the following year. Indeed, it was widely reported that former student Dr Jennifer Litau had lamented “Hopefully, from this devastation a new Boliu will emerge.. "
Four years later, her prayers and those of the murat people and three generations of alumni were answered, with the arrival of the prime minister James Marape and the presentation of K3.0m funding by Treasurer and Member for Kavieng, Ian Ling-Stuckey, at the 90th anniversary celebration of the first adventist missionaries to Murat.
" It is a miracle. K3.0m funding to any high school is alot of money, so i urge the Chairman of the Boliu HS BOM and its headmaster and teaching staff to spend this money wisely, aquit and to complete an iconic building that so many national leaders from Murat had graduated from " said the Treasurer.
He said the total funding recieved todate from the Marape-Basil Government, was K3.5m, which would now allow Boliu HS to convert to a secondary school.
