ExxonMobil pumps joy into school


ExxoNMobil PNG has partnered with WW Constructions to build a double-classroom for the Maiari Salvation Army preschool in Porebada, Central.
It has office space for teachers, desks, chairs and a water tank
The company sponsored the new double complex to cater for Maiari’s 81 students
The school had been using the head teacher’s house and a church building next to it as a classroom since its establishment in 2014.
This new project provides a proper learning facility for more local children between the ages of five and nine, and a reliable source of drinking water.
School administrator Captain Gau Simon said it had been a challenge teaching children in facilities that were not good for learning. “We are so grateful to ExxonMobil PNG for the new double classroom because the students will have a better facility to learn in and we can enrol more students,’ he said.
