 THE Bogia district administration is set to conduct its school survey with the K100,000 allocated for it.

District education advisor, Philip Morrison said the survey was part of a nationwide school survey to help the Education Department to make improvements in schools.

Morrison said officers in Bogia were ready to carry out the survey but were waiting for MP John Hickey to give permission to use the fund.

“The official survey forms are already at the district,” he said.

He said schools along the Madang-East Sepik border would be included in the survey, including Aion Oprar Primary School.

The Aion Oprar School in the Marrienburg LLG, in Angoram, East Sepik, was denied registration but Bogia stepped in and got it registered under its education division.

“A special team will visit the school this month and make recommendations to improve its facilities and learning standard,” Morrison said.

He said the school provided education services to more than 10 villages in Angoram and had Madang teachers staffing the school.

Morrison said the Holy Spirit High School in Bogia had been recommended to enrol its first Grade 11 students next year but certain issues at the provincial education office had slowed the process.
