Remote Morobe community school reopened


THE Buvelem Community School is located in the remote Dambi village of Middle Watut in Bulolo which was reopened last Thursday after two years of closure because of no proper road access.
The school was reopened after a road to the school was initiated under the administration of the Bulolo MP Sam Basil funded through the Bulolo DSIP (district service improvement programme) fund.
The school has a roll of more than 200 students from surrounding villages.
One of the teachers, Ricky Surute, told The National that he and
other teachers faced social difficulties.
It was the reason why most of the teachers posted there had left.
He said one of the major challenges he was facing was the overcrowded classrooms as more children desired educated.
Surute said he acknowledged the reopening of the school by the district administration.
He said the school was now left with the challenge to reach the basic standard of education required by the Education Department because of its remoteness or where it is located.
He said students attending the school lacked the essential quality of education and that was the major issue for the school.
Speaking during the reopening of the school, board chairman Ben Siliwana emphasised that youths in the area were faced with illiteracy.
Siliwana said poor roads was the main reason for the closure of the school and the major challenge now was to ensure children in their area received quality education.
