MBP focuses on implementing new syllabus

Education

MILNE Bay has used provincial funds to purchase copies of Bilum Books for 100 selected elementary schools.
The objective is to make sure the new Standards-Based English Syllabus is properly implemented so that literacy levels within the province will be improved.
Elementary teachers are now required to teach English as a subject and the National Department of Education has produced a new Standards-Based English Syllabus for Elementary Schools.
Bilum Books are aligned with that syllabus and the publishers are running free workshops to show teachers how to use the new Standards-Based resources to implement the new syllabus.
