PARENTS are urged not to turn their children away if they choose not to continue their education.
Headmaster of Purare Primary School Luke Tepatul told parents at the school’s Grade 8 graduation last Thursday in Tambul district, Western Highlands that there was no such thing as failure in education.
Tepatul told students and parents that if some students could make it to Grade 9, 11 or did not get an offer after completing Grade 12, there were many avenues still available for them to continue their education.
He said students could still continue through informal education systems such as the College of Distance Education or through open campus of various university branches established in the province.
“When you do not get a space next year to continue into Grade 9, don’t feel upset and consider yourself a failure, there is no such thing as failure, you still have an opportunity to continue your education,” Tepatul said.
He urged parents to feel responsible and continue to assist their kids to continue their education.
He said education institutions didn’t have enough space to accommodate every student graduating from primary, high schools and secondary schools.
“This doesn’t stop anyone from continuing their education, you can still live with your parents and continue your education.”
Tepatul urged students who would continue into Grade 9 next year to study hard and not to misuse their privilege.
He told them they were competing with thousands of students in the province and country for limited spaces in the various tertiary institutions.
