THE recent Essay competition for girls that was organised by the National Information and Communications Technology Authority (NICTA) was a great motivation for many young girls from various secondary schools at nationwide to participate and to exhibit their talents in writing.
Language policy coordinator of Kerowagi Secondary School, in Chimbu, Nick Towa said the school was proud to acknowledge that one of their Grade 11 students, Fiona Kepa was lucky to win the laptop for the best essay in the Highlands Region.
The presentation of prize was organised during the school assembly time.
Principal Samuel Kono thanked the female students for participating in the ICT Essay Competition.
The school gave Kepa a thesaurus/dictionary in a show of appreciation, saying that it will help her write more essays.
In order to rectify this problem and to promote better English language usage, the principal advisor Essy Walkaima, with the approval of Chimbu Education Board, has introduced the compulsory English Speaking policy throughout Chimbu Schools.
That is why such essay competitions were encouraging for the young students, especially girls to show their talents.
