TWENTY-five people have been selected in the new Jiwaka provincial education board (JPEB).
They were sworn in yesterday at Banz by the legal adviser to the Department of Education (DOE) Alex Haboic.
Acting education programme manager Erwin Us said board members were selected from all sectors of the community.
He said education required a collective effort which was why the net was cast wide.
Haboic said Jiwaka would no longer operate under the Western Highlands board.
He said he had already prepared a separate draft bill for the Jiwaka board to operate under.
Jiwaka Governor Dr William Tongamp.
Tongamp asked for cooperation among members to push education forward.
The governor, whose number one priority is education, said in order to achieve the desired outcome in Jiwaka, teamwork was required.
He said education issues in the new province were challenging but it required a collective effort to address them.
This year the governor has paid 50% of the school fees for all tertiary students attending universities and colleges across the nation and he has pledged to continue to support the work of education in the province for as long as he remains in office.
