Henganofi district in Eastern Highlands will have a new secondary school to be built at a cost of K32 million.
Member for Henganofi and Police Minister Robert Atiyafa said the new school will share the load on the only existing Henganofi Secondary School, which serves the 65,000 population in the district of which half of the population is children.
Atiyafa said Henganofi is populated and there is a need for the second secondary school.
He said the district in partnership with the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) will rehabilitate and extend the existing Homu SDA Primary School to upgrade it into the new secondary school.
Mr Atiyafa said the pioneering grade nines for the new Homu SDA Secondary School located on the Kuru mountain tops of Henganofi will start classes next year (2015).
"K2 million had already been allocated for initial ground works," said Mr Atiyafa.
Meanwhile, Mr Atiyafa said service delivery depends on good leadership in everyday activities in the society.
And as a former premier of Eastern highlands, he made sure the Goroka market sold only garden foods.
He said betelnut used to be sold at the Five Mile market outside Goroka unlike today, resulting in Goroka market filled with filth with betelnut vendors and stains as well domesticated animals.
"There were no holdups along infamous Barola section of the Highlands highway," he said.
All these happened because of good leadership resulting in service delivery and in his term as member for Henganofi.
Mr Atiyafa said he will make sure that infrastructure developments connect the people of Henganofi.
"In my term, I would like to see that not only trucks have access to these rehabilitated roads but taxis as well," said Mr Atiyafa.
