THE Government will pay full tuition fees for students attending elementary preparatory to Grade 12 schools, flexible and open distance education, vocational centres and inclusive education resource centres this year.
The Department of Education has deposited almost K197 million into the Bank of Papua New Guinea.
This will be transferred to three commercial banks for tuition fees for the 8,419 schools in the country.
The tuition fee free money was deposited on Feb 6.
There will be two payments made to cover the total fees.
The public was informed of the first disbursement last week and was advised that no student was to be sent home from school for non-payment of project fees.
The maximum project fees set by the National Education Board is K200.
Below is the list of maximum tuition fees set by the education board which the government will be paying to the schools for each student:
Parents, guardians and community leaders are urged to monitor how the money is being spent.
Board of management chairspersons and head teachers are advised to meet with their provincial and district education advisors regularly to show that the money is being used correctly and for the purpose it is intended for.
Parents and guardians are asked to note that other fees charged by approved schools are their responsibility as well.
