THE Grade 12 graduates of Port Moresby National High School have been reminded that discipline and obedience are the keys to become successful by Pastor Charles Lapa.
Lapa, who is the school governing council chairman, said there were six national high schools in the country but Port Moresby National High School was different because students were trained to have fear of the Lord.
He urged parents to take interest in their children as that would motivate them to perform well.
Principal David Diowai added that most of the problems that caused students to leave school could be prevented if both parents’ and students’ remained focused in their respective roles and responsibilities.
“Many parents these days are not giving the required amount of attention towards their children’s education,” Diowai said.
“They even don’t care to check how well their children are doing in schools.”
Diowai said that careless attitude of parents was becoming a concern in most of the schools in the country.
He said the lack of guidance and supervision contributed towards students’ indiscipline behaviour in school and in the streets of the nation’s cities and towns.
He said the school had a good discipline record of both staff and student conduct.
“This high standard of discipline contributes towards the achievement of academic excellence which this school is best known for that,” Diowai said.
The city school’s 19th Grade 12 graduation saw 316 students graduate.
