District invests in education


HUON Gulf district in Morobe have built and commissioned five primary schools – four in Lower Watut – to lift the education standard in the district.
The two existing primary schools are at Maralina and Uruf.
Many children from the 10 villages on the banks of the river have to swim and walk to reach the two schools.
The District Development Authority therefore built new schools at Wawas, Mafanazo, Babuaf, Chiatz and Markham Bridge.
There are now 59 primary schools in the district.
Huon Gulf MP Ross Seymour said when the children were educated, they would make use of the fertile land, use the timber and gold and other natural resources.
He allocated more than K3 million to education through tertiary scholarships, classrooms, teachers houses and library books.
District education manager Moses Wanga, standard officer Sam Geseng, presidents Philemon Tomala (Salamaua), Michael Poane (Wampar) and Otti Bagiro (Morobe) accompanied Seymour to the schools for commissioning, graduations and supplying library books.
Rural volunteer library services leader Joyce Orere and women supplied library books through the K100,000 funding by the DDA.
