SOME secondary school teachers in Morobe are seeking answers from the Education Department on why they have not been paid.
It included about 40 teachers and principals from Lae Secondary School, two from Busu and others from the Malahang Technical School.
Busu Secondary School principal, who is affected, said: “Some teachers who should be on the payroll have been left out.
“Some who should not be there are on payroll. There must be a mix-up in the system and we want the Department of Education and the Salaries office to explain it to us.”
Lae Secondary School principal Christopher Raymond, who was affected, said: “The only reason I can think of is
that the Resumption of Duty Summary Sheet (RODSS) were handed to the Salaries Office in Lae late or that the RODSS were sent to the Port Moresby Education Office late.”
Raymond said he spoke to Sinimil Bale from the Salary Office in Lae who confirmed that Lae Secondary School was the first to submit the forms.
Bale could not comment on the matter.
Acting provincial education adviser Keith Jiram could not be reached for comment.
Lae Secondary School suspended classes yesterday and sent students home.
