PARENTS share an equal responsibility with teachers in the education of children, according to executive director of the International Education Agency Joe Lalie.
He said the success of students in their education depended on parents and teachers.
Lalie was speaking during the opening of the renovated multipurpose hall and administration building at the Hagen International School last Friday.
The renovation cost K1.35 million. He said the agency, as a private school, would continue to provide quality education to children in the country.
He said infrastructure development was an important part of education.
Since 2002, the agency has spent K50 million in all its education institutions in the country under its capital works programme.
He said K2.8 million was spent on its two institutions in Western Highlands.
He said they would allocate K100,000 for the fencing of the school.
Lalie said security of the staff, students and infrastructure was important.
“I want to thank the staff, board and management of the Hagen International School for their initiative to renovate the old colonial hall and extend it,” he said.
Lalie is a former principal of the school.
Board chairman Ben Sesimu said apart from the renovation, the school installed 33 computers with internet, pubic addressing system and provided white goods and musical instruments for students who wanted to learn music.
