The massive contribution to Huon Gulf district education services has resulted in a steady improvement of the district’s learning standard. This was revealed by school inspector basic education Sam Geseng during the opening of a double classroom at Markham Farm Primary School of Wampar Local Level Government of Huon Gulf district in Morobe Province on Tuesday this week. Mr Geseng said, from reports released by Measurement Standard Unit Index, Huon Gulf district is 38 percent compared to past ratings and this is a good sign. “However, we are still below the pass mark of 50 percent, indicating that we still need to do more to meet the global demand and increase the percentage to above the cutoff pass mark. “In order to soar higher, teachers must do their work faithfully, teaching students and students must increase their level of knowledge and performance in class,” Mr Geseng said. He congratulated Markham Farm Primary School for topping the province last year with grade eight examination results scoring 142 out of 150. Mr Geseng said last year was the first Grade eight examinations for MFPS and the student that scored such high marks was too good and welcoming news for Huon Gulf district to expect more excellent results from this particular school. “I first visited the school in 2014 only to find out that most of the classrooms are made from bush material and deteriorating conditions, yet accommodating more than 482 students,” Mr Geseng said.
