AS the new academic year approaches, the elementary school children from Naru, Kouye and Ganglau villages in Madang province will have new classrooms to study in.
Ramu NiCo Management (MCC) Limited built three new double classrooms for the three schools: Naru Hope Elementary, Kouye Hope Elementary and Ganglau Hope Elementary at a total cost of K210,000.
Each classrooms cost K70,000 and took three months to complete and were part of social and economic development plan under the MoA signed between the developer Ramu NiCo, landowners and the Government.
Ganglau Hope Elementary School is one of the schools built by Ramu NiCo with a double classroom and donated to the people.
The Education Department will designate a teaching staff.
Naru and Kouye Hope Elementary Schools are existing schools where Ramu NiCo built two new double classrooms each and donated to them.
Ramu NiCo provided all the resources including manpower to complete the school and classrooms and termed them “Hope Elementary School” as part of its social obligation to give “hope” to youths in the project impacted areas.
Since its inception, Ramu NiCo has built other infrastructure in the area including the Ramu NiCo Bridge, renovating clinics and upgrading roads.
