BALOB Lutheran Teachers’ College in Lae, Morobe, still maintains its conveyor-belt production of school teachers, with 443 graduating yesterday in its latest batch.
They are the last batch of diploma holders who completed two years of studies while the rest who graduated after this year will be required to complete three years of the diploma programme.
Mathew Poyabe, Teachers’ Services Commission operations commissioner and guest speaker,
told the graduates that while it was good news for them that the national government had increased salaries, money should not be their focus.
He said the TSC was an important stakeholder during negotiations which has seen the government generally increasing various salary components of teachers starting next year.
“You will be paid accordingly starting next January, all of you,” he said.
“You must serve not because of the money, you must serve for the love of the teaching profession,” Poyabe said.
He also called on communities around each primary school to support their school.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of PNG was also hailed for its contribution in education as part of PNG’s development process.
The upcoming Lutheran University to be built inside the Martin Luther Seminary will complement the service of Balob college.
