School to stage walkathon


A PRIVATE Christian school in Port Moresby will be staging a walkathon tomorrow to raise funds to purchase equipment for a proposed television network.
Institute of Christian Academy founder and director Tobias Nangunduo said all the students in the ICA campuses would be participating in the fundraising event to purchase equipment for the new TV network, Christian Media Network (CMN).
“CMN will be a subsidiary of ICA to promote Christian values and principles in the country. Fifty per cent of the content will be local and the other part will be from abroad,” Nangunduo said.
“The funds raised will go to buying cameras, editing machines and other equipment to realise the dream of ICA in reaching out to the citizens of the country with the Gospel. We hope to raise about K100,000 for the equipment.
“Students, teachers, parents, guardians and members of the public will be participating in the walkathon, which starts at 6am.”
The walk will start at Central Waigani and end at Ela Beach, where there will be food and drinks sold, as well as games played. Prizes will also be awarded to participants.
Nangunduo said students were eager to raise funds for the TV network and some have already had sponsors pledging good amounts.
“There was one student who has already raised K400 and another almost K500. If everybody in the school can raise a bit, we should have no problems in meeting our targeted amount.”
Meanwhile, seven students from ICA are currently sitting their Grade 10 national examinations.
