MIARU Primary School in Gulf recently held its 12th graduation ceremony along with the official opening of a new double classroom, seven ablution blocks and a teacher’s house.
Established in 1953, the small school was delighted to have AusAID fund the much needed resources that were lacking for many years.
East Kerema council president Chris Soi Oasora told the students that not many students from the province were making it into high schools and tertiary institutions and it was up to them to change the trend and make education a priority in their lives.
He said unlike before, students now had more resources and had the potential to do better in their studies.
The buildings were opened by Oasora council president Philip Sivi and AusAID representative Karlos Keai.
Special cash prizes were also awarded to students who came first in their classes by Oasora.
Head teacher John Ivila reminded parents to discipline their children at home so that their behavior in school reflected what they learned at home as well.
“Parents, teachers and students must take ownership of the new school facilities, including the library block. The new facilities will raise the morale of our teachers and students as the years go by,” he said.
Ivila thanked the Chancellor State College in Queensland, through the AusAID, for funding the project and PNG Forest Project for constructing the buildings.
