MOROBE Governor Kelly Naru and Bulolo MP Sam Basil bemoaned the low academic standards in Morobe province and urged Grace Memorial Secondary School board, teachers and students to lift their standards.
The two MPs were guests at the school’s 9th grade 12 graduation last Thursday and strongly urged the school to lift and the school management to ensure funds given to the school are prudently managed. Morobe schools finished 12th in the Papua New Guinea academic rankings and that displeased the two MPs.
They said they as politicians are making everything possible for the school to improve its infrastructures which should have positive impact on the learning of the students and similar efforts must come from the teachers and students.
They wanted the students to strive for excellence and better academic results rather than indulging in drugs and alcohol.
Mr Naru told the students that a student may not be the brightest in his or her class but if he or she is disciplined, dedicated, determined and is able to master the art of controlling his or her disturbances that student will do well in school and life.
Mr Basil told the teachers and management of the school that he is putting them on notice and want improvement on the academic standards of the school.
Mr Naru said it was good to see a big graduating class but sad to see standards dropping.
