Grade 11 students of Kopkop College learnt about weather forecasting and disaster management activities in the country, following their visit to the National Weather Office in Port Moresby.

A CATHOLIC priest says there is more work to do on child prostitution, which goes beyond the law enforcement agencies.
Catholic Bishops Conference general secretary Fr Giorgio Licini said families, schools, churches and citizens should educate young people not to sell themselves for material goods.
He made the comments after recent reports of people operating brothels in Port Moresby. “It should be the duty of schools to look carefully into the situation of each student and see that not one is forced into prostitution due to school fee obligations,” Fr Licini said.
“It is the duty of everybody to help neighbouring families that they have not enough to eat.
FIGHTS among groups of school students reflect a general lack of discipline and counselling among the children.

There are many reasons as to why school fights are occurring.
Whatever the reasons, the fights caused by aggrieved persons who are not happy over something that is not right according to their reasoning based on their judgment to warrant such dangerous behaviour that can be harmful and life threatening.
