A CHURCH-run school in Port Moresby celebrating its 50th anniversary has been promised new classrooms and facilities by the Government.
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and Moresby North-West MP Michael Malabag, who joined Sacred Heart Primary School teachers and students yesterday in the celebration, said they would help the school.
O’Neill promised to fund the building of classrooms plus a bus to be delivered to the school next month.
He committed K120,000 to the school board for the construction of the new classrooms.
Malabag promised to also fund four classrooms in one building before the end of the year.
The Catholic Church established the school at Hohola in 1964 with 19 students.
Today there are 1221 students and 28 teachers.
Board chairman Ben Basso said the National Education Board viewed the school as a leading primary school in the country because of its excellent academic performance.
“We have committed and devoted teachers but the issue is the capacity to deliver,” Basso said.
He said the school needed teachers quarters located close to the school.
