New classroom block for Enga Teachers’ College

Highlands

THE Enga Teachers College will have a new classroom block – thanks to the Papua New Guinea-Australia partnership.
The K10 million project includes a library, science and computer laboratories, 16 classrooms and male and female toilets accessible to people living with disabilities.
Enga Governor Sir Peter Ipatas said the expansion would make the college a fully-developed teacher training facility by 2025, producing an additional 300 new teachers in the next five years.
The project will increase access to primary teacher training to meet the demand for primary school teachers. Australian High Commissioner Bruce Davis commended the college for providing facilities which could be accessed by people living with disabilities.
“The new classrooms and facilities will support Enga’s ambition to become one of the top teacher training colleges in Papua New Guinea,” Davis said. College deputy principal John Ambelo said teachers played a key role in development.
“In the remote communities of Enga, teachers are regarded as very important people who help their tribes and families,” Ambelo said.
