My son will be graduating comes April in which I am looking forward to. However, I am not really happy and I am pissed off by the way the University is managing the money of hard working students and parents.
My son’s case is that, he has maintained his TESAS Scholarship from year 1-4. However, during the beginning of every year, I usually sacrifice the well-being of my family to cater for his fees by getting school fee loans though I don’t get much during fortnights. With that being said, it is a norm in UPNG that the government components of the students who are on TESAS does not come in on time. And yet the UPNG authority usually doesn’t make it their business to check the people at OHE for these components.

Mt. Hagen Secondary School in Western Highlands Province maintained 3rd position in Grade 12 National Examination Performance Results in Papua New Guinea last year, 2019.
The Deputy Principal Curriculum (DPC), MR. Michael KIGA in a staff debreif this morning, said that 449 students out of 513 Gr.12 students who attended Mt. Hagen Secondary last year, 2019, secured spaces in tertiary institutions this year, 2020.

The Government of the day must continue to reward top performing students by subsidizing part of the full school fees through TESAS and the parents/students should cover the rest through Higher Education Loan Program - HELP. I believe such arrangement will make the HELP loan manageable for a student when he/she gets employment.
If the PMJM HELP policy replaced the TESAS completely then HELP policy is not a help at all. The policy will harm the Nation by enslaving the future tax payers and give rise to a debt-ridden work force. For instance, it will cost a student around K80,000 to K100,000 for a 4 years degree program if TESAS is completely removed. So a student will be systematically forced to owe a debt of K80,000+ to repay during his/her employment period. And this is not good for a citizen and a tax payer.
