THE remote Koroba Secondary School in Hela Province has allowed God to take centre stage in the students’ living and learning as they begin their 2014 academic year.
This was declared during a historic dedication ceremony at the school on Wednesday this week.
School principal Samson Alunda said the school board of governors, staff, students, the local community and all stakeholders decided to stage the dedication day and commit the 2014 academic year and the entire school administration, operations, learning and teaching activities and the school facilities to the care of God.
They prayed for effective academic and spiritual prosperity in the lives of the students.
Mr Alunda said over the years and since its establishments in 1979, this government-run institution has faced a lot of problems with student discipline, in-fighting, clashes between students, teachers and locals plus a host of other problems that rooted from the work of evil.
Mr Alunda said by allowing God to take the centre stage they believe that the school would advance and prosper.
The end result will be more disciplined students with improved academic attainments each year. He said teachers can use their knowledge and skills to impact on the lives children, teaching discipline, but if there is no strong self-esteem or other positive values then there will always be problems.
Mr Alunda said: "Students are future leaders of the country and like every leader they pass through school. Schools must be a place to groom these future leaders. As such by allowing God to take control of their lives at early stages, these students will grow up and become good leaders of our country."
He said last year, the school had a similar day before the start of the academic year but that was only when the local prayer warriors came to the school and prayed over the school premises, facilities, staff and students. Mr Alunda said this year they decided to have the dedication ceremony themselves and would make it an annual event of the school calendar.
Mr Alunda said progress was now made at the school as all stakeholders including local Koroba Lake Kopiago MP Phillip Undialu are throwing their support in terms of infrastructure development and it was only proper that God dwells among them in order for them to achieve the desired results.
