Youth & Careers

THE Immanuel Lutheran School (IMLUS) in Lae celebrated its 40th year of existence last week with a programme that included cultural and musical performances.
The main highlight were student’s singsing groups and live performances of comedian Elton Kili and singer Armstrong Gomara (Dadiigii).
The three-day event also featured student items of creative dances, gospel band and brass band performances.
Stalls were also put up and traditional groups from Morobe and other provinces participated.
Principal Yatu Idauman thanked the event’s organisers and said it was the first time the school had celebrated an anniversary.
“IMLUS is a self-help school and we are grateful for everyone’s support including students, teachers, parents, former students and other friends,” he said.
Idauman thanked Prima Small Goods for its help in staging the event.
He said IMLUS had plans to stage more fundraising events in the coming months to help the school build new infrastructure and get materials and equipment.
Idauman said despite the limited funding received by the school, both from the State and church over the years, the school had learned to be self-reliant and had made progress.
IMLUS was established in 1979 to give students a second chance at education and is a registered Flexible Open Distance Education (Fode) provider.
Idauman said the school maintained a disciplined Christian environment for its students with courses aimed at empowering them.
