EDAI Town has witnessed another milestone in the opening of the Edai Christian Academy for estate residents and neighbouring villages.
Edai Town development director Kym Yong said it was an important day for the growing township in facilitating the development of an education institution that would serve the residents and its neighbours.
She said it was their long-term goal as the developer to bring education services to the township for its residents and neighbouring communities.
The developer in collaboration with the Adelaide Christian School (ACS) have administered the Edai Town Early Learning Centres (ELC) for elementary level and the opening of the new school is the next step in delivering quality and affordable education to the Edai Town community.
Yong said the developer was also looking at in investing in primary, secondary school and vocational level education.
ACS chief executive officer Kym Golding said its Christian academy at Edai Town was its second institution in the country after Sunrise Bethel Christian School (SBCS) at Waigani, National Capital District, and he was looking forward to working alongside the developer to provide quality education for the children of Edai Town and communities in Port Moresby.
Golding said having good teaching facilities along with teaching staff and administrative support would ensure the children received a quality education.
He said he was looking forward to investing in local teachers through its partnership with the International Education Agency (IEA) College of Tafe.
“If the teachers are well-trained to teach at any levels of schools than they will deliver the correct teaching to improve the learning of the students,” he said.
Landowner representative Sir Moi Avei said quality education was important for his people and acknowledged the collaboration between the Edai Town developer and ACS in meeting that need.
