NINE classrooms built by Oil Search Ltd for Erave High School in Southern Highlands were opened last Friday.
Finance and Education Minister James Marape gave K300,000 to renovate facilities at the school.
Provincial administrator Ungia Kembo said the provincial government would build a double-classroom next year.
Ungia said the Kagua-Erave district was among the least developed electorates and Governor William Powi was doing much to improve all schools in the province.
“Human resource is important for the development of the province and schools have been given top priority,” he said.
Kagua-Erave district administrator Fr Mark Nande said schools in the electorate had deteriorated over the years and public servants had fled, looking for greener pastures.
“Within a short period of time, Erave is beginning to see changes after many years of neglect by elected leaders.
“We are happy that Governor Powi had given priority to rural areas first,” he said.
He said Powi had given K2 million for the Kagua-Erave Road maintenance, K300,000 to upgrade three airstrips, K100,000 to upgrade Batri Road and K100,000 to maintain the Erave government station.
