FORMER Kainantu High School students in Eastern Highlands plan to register their Ex-Kainantu High School Students Foundation with the Investment Promotion Authority.
Chairman Jackson James said the aim was to create an avenue through which former students could contribute towards the rehabilitation and improvement of its infrastructure and assist the school in other ways.
“Many students have gone through Kainantu High School and furthered their education in colleges or universities elsewhere,” he said.
“They have become prominent members of the community and the country.
“One fine example is Kennedy Wemin, who is the Melanesian Trusties Services Ltd chief executive officer and was recently appointed to the National Housing Corporation executive board,” he said.
He said Wemin was a registered member of Ex-KHSSF and had taken on the task of registering the foundation with IPA.
“He has committed K10,000 to the foundation through the company.
“I am appealing to former KHS students around the country to register as a member. Through Ex-KHSSF Foundation, former students can work together to help their school improve its infrastructure and its standard to be on par with other secondary schools that are way ahead.”
