Trainee teachers farewelled


SEVENTEEN trainee teachers from Dauli Teachers’ College, who attended a five-week  training at the Sumia Primary School in the Imbonggu district of Southern Highlands, were farewelled last Thursday.
The event coincided with the 41st independence anniversary and teachers, students and the community celebrated the two events.
The community had not celebrated anniversary  with such enthusiasm before.
College head teacher Michael Ipis said the impression everyone put on depicted true patriotism.
“These trainee teachers inside the classroom will teach the students the history of the country, how we gained independence and the true meaning of patriotism and it will be ingrained in them to be true Papua New Guineans,” Ipis said.
College lecturer and trainee teachers supervisor Joshua Mini said the event was well organised and  teachers enjoyed their five-week stay at the school.
He said he was proud to see everyone in high spirits and in their red, black and gold uniforms, the traditional dances, poems and songs.
Leader of the trainees Leonnie Wanpis thanked the community for their kindness and hospitality.
