Education

A TOTAL of 168 grade 10 students graduated from the newly established Bitapaka High School in Kokopo, East New Britain, on Thursday.
The graduation ceremony, which was themed “Pioneering changes in our communities”, was attended by members from the ENB administration, the education division and stakeholders who contributed to the development of the school.
ENB deputy governor and Bitapaka local level government president Cosmas Bauk said it was a very significant occasion as this was the first time to be held in the LLG.
Bauk said the establishment of the new school brought great joy and lessened the burden on parents, as they know, that their children are safe and attending school near them.
He acknowledged the stakeholder TZEN Niugini Oil Palm, a clan group in the LLG for providing the land, as well as the community and the ENB government for their support in the contribution to building the school.
“Our children’s education is our priority and the support given was the way forward,” he said.
“I urge the communities to take ownership of the school look after the properties as the foundation has been set for future students.”
Bauk congratulated the graduands and encouraged them to pursue their education and find their purpose in life and be productive.
