Quality facilities, materials, teachers determines quality education: Officer


QUALITY education is determined by quality facilities, materials and teachers, Huon Gulf district education manager Moses Wanga says.
Wanga said this when opening a double classroom at Markham Farm, one of the oldest schools in the Huon Gulf district of Morobe, last Friday.
“Education means a healthy, wealthy and wiser family, community and society,” Wanga said.
The Markham Farm Primary School is one of 109 primary schools in the district which also has 59 elementary schools and two high schools – Salamaua and Morobe.
Wanga announced during the opening that more than 500 students from Huon Gulf have benefited from a tertiary scholarship programme.
He said K3 million was so far been spent on the scholarship despite hiccups in accessing funding.
He was also critical of the lack of school libraries to enhance pupil’s ability to read and speak English.
A rural schools library programme is currently being rolled out in the district.
Governor Kelly Naru and Huon Gulf MP Ross Seymour opened the double classroom and a teacher’s house and pledged to provide funds for a classroom and a teacher’s house each.
