THE Port Moresby Technical College is to become a Poly Technical Institution by 2015, principal Allan Tira said.
He said this at the graduation ceremony of the school yesterday when thanking Australian aid and Australian Pacific Technical College (APTC) for implementing an infrastructure support project.
He said the agreement began this year between the school and APTC to shift to a Poly Technical institute.
He thanked parents and governing councils for their support to making this year successful for the school and for achieving given projects.
“The project that would be implemented include two new toilets, blocks and the construction of an Industry Standard National Automotive Training Centre which is due to start early next year once planning and building approval are received,” Tira said.
He acknowledged teachers who, out of their own initiative, undertook upgrading studies at the University of Goroka.
He said such initiative reflected the realisation of the needs and requirement for all teachers and mangers to upgrade their knowledge and qualification to enhance quality skilled graduates.
“I personally commend those who went out of their own way to undergo the training,” Tira said.
Chairperson for the school’s governing council Heni Franki said the school’s reputation suffered for quite a while but it was beginning to earn back it good name.
“We are dedicated to revive the college brand,” he said.
