The number of student intakes from secondary schools in the Morobe province into tertiary institutions has decreased.
That’s according to the PNG University of Technology Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Pumwa.
Professor Pumwa said School fights in Lae city is the main factors contributing towards the declining number of student intakes into tertiary institutions nationwide.
He told students from various schools in the Morobe province during the Unitech’s Open day last Friday that there’s no space for them in tertiary institutions if they continue fighting.
He urged students in Lae schools to disengage in student violence and focus on their studies.
