HAVING good, comfortable classrooms helps learning and encourages teachers to perform, a senior Government official says.
The newly-established Zifasing School of Academy in Morobe’s Huon Gulf tried to follow the district development authority’s aim to provide quality education infrastructures in the district.
Huon Gulf administrator Moses Wanga said quality education depended on good infrastructure among other aspects.
“Once students have good classrooms, desk, tables, with other things they need in a classroom, it will motivate them to learn properly,” he said.
Papua New Guinea PRIME Minister James Marape has commended Huon Gulf, in Morobe, for using its limited financial resources on delivering quality education for children in the district.
Marape was in the district on Friday for the launch of the Zifasing School of Academy and the opening of two classrooms.
He was invited by local MP Ross Seymour to also witness the handover of vehicles, dinghies and machinery to be used for infrastructure programmes in the district.
Marape told locals at Zifasing village that education was the key to a good future for their children.
