STUDENTS of Bomana Primary School in Port Moresby have been urged to keep their school clean so that they can be assisted by sponsors and partners.
Education Department first assistant secretary Peter Kants was at the school to witness the handing over of five willow bins and two sanitary buckets by Anglicare under the Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (Wash) programme.
He said the department had seen the importance of Wash in schools and created a new unit to monitor it.
“We will come to monitor and this will be done in partnership with the donors and other facilitators,” he said.
“This is ongoing. You expect more things to happen. But it rests with you. (If) you want more changes, it’s in your hands.”
The school was chosen from six schools in NCD.
Wash was initiated by the United Nations Children’s Fund to give children access to clean facilities and allow them the use of clean toilets.
The Education Department, with technical support from Anglicare PNG and Unicef, implements the Wash policy in schools
