The all boy’s catholic mission school at Bomana in Port Moresby, Dela Salle Secondary School is undergoing major maintenance in preparation for the 2014 academic year.
The school’s maintenance project supervisor Markus Saun told the media early this morning that two major projects have been ongoing since late last year.
“These two projects are the upgrading and extension of the ablution blocks and the upgrading of the water mains,” said Mr Saun.
Saun said that at the end of the 2013 school year, the ablution blocks had deteriorated to a state that rendered them unusable if left unattended. This gave rise to the projects funding all of which has come from the school and the catholic arch dioses to which Dela Salle is affiliated.
The water main was reported to have been damaged before the Christmas period. He said that the main in itself was a very old system and that this was the reason why an upgrade project has been started to see that the school’s water woes are met to the highest possible standard.
Grade 9 and English teacher Peter Seriva said that the ablution blocks’ maintenance should be completed by January 27.
“School will resume on the last week of January so we expect these projects to be completed before we teachers prepare ourselves for the arrival of the students for registration,” said Sariva.
