Education needs better conditions to thrive: MP


BOTH teachers and students need to be accommodated and fed well in order to produce good results.
Yangoru-Saussia MP Richard Maru said in order for students to produce good grades and the teachers to produce quality students, teachers’ needed proper support such as houses, water supply, lighting and other necessities that contributed to good human development.
Maru told staff and students of Kubalia Secondary School, East Sepik, on Friday that he would support services such as a good water supply and other needs.
He said a Divine Word University (DWU) matriculation centre would also be established within the school to make sure students who missed out on selection to tertiary institutions could matriculate in the village.
“This is to make sure that no student misses out on a chance to continue their tertiary education,” he said.
“We choose DWU because they have institutions in the province like the nursing college and the teachers college so when students complete their matriculation they can apply to the colleges.”
Maru said he would invest in education to ensure no child in his electorate missed out on being educated.
