KITIP Secondary School in Western Highlands has been declared a School of Excellence by Dei MP Wesley Nukundi.
Nukundi last Friday attended one of the biggest graduation ceremonies in which 600 Grades 10 and 12 students marked the end of the school year. It is the first School of Excellence declared in the highlands region.
Nukundi thanked principal Robert Kauna and the academic staff for their hard work in making the school improve its record every year.
He said he had already spent about K2 million from his electoral funds on education alone.
Nukundi assured students, teachers and parents that he would ask Finance Minister James Marape for more funding to build education facilities in Dei.
Two new high schools – Kenembo High School and Nunga High School – are to carter for the increasing number of students in Dei.
He said work on the new schools would commence immediately to cater for extra students enrolling in 2014.
Kauna said human capital was an important resource to invest in.
The occasion was witnessed by Miti Peai from the Office of Higher Education, assistant secretary for Education Stanley Maip, superintendent for high and secondary schools Martin Marr and police personnel.
