Students in a rural school in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville will now be connect to the outside world through television.
They will join other schools nationwide for broadcast lessons from their classroom.
The project is funded by the Bougainville Regional MP’s office, under the Provincial Services Improvement Program.
Haisi Primary School, located in the Siwai District of South Bouganville, was established in 1962 by the Catholic Missionaries.
With the New Television Disc, senior Teacher Chris Turapidik says, this will assist the 120 plus students from grades 3 to 8 in their learning.
Education Programs like News is essential to student learning and Mr Turapidik says it will become part of their program.
No form of assistance or maintenance has been received from the education authorities since the school’s establishment by the Missionaries.
Board Chairman, Rex Rumal, said that the buildings were condemned by the education authorities.
But Now Haisi has a reason to smile. All classes will be accommodated with the inclusion of a double classroom funded through the Provincial Services Program
Mr Rumal thanked regional MP, Joe Lera, and other stakeholders for prioritizing in education.
The new classrooms and TV disc, funded by MP Lera’s Office, the South Bouganville MP and Aus-Aid, will improve learning in Haisi Siwai in Bouganville.
