A new project to build a classroom, teachers’ house and school fence for Intoap Primary school in Markham Valley of Morobe has been supported by a K200,000 donation from National Gaming Control Board.
“Investing in education is something that we consider important because we see people benefit from that,” NGCB chief executive officer Imelda Agon said during the presentation last week.
“We believe that the Government’s priority is health and education so the board has approved to fund the project.”
Headmaster Tom Gurub said the money was a huge help in completing the project which would be completed by the end of the year.
“We are anticipating to build a classroom, a teacher’s house and the school fence using the funding,” he said.
Gurup said the school hoped to complete the projects this year in conjunction with its 50th anniversary.
He said this was the first time, in his 11 years at the school, that such a donation had been made.
