New school for Nawaeb children


CHILDREN in Goabadik village at Nabak in Nawaeb, Morobe, will have a new primary school.
Governor Ginson Saonu’s commitment for a new school at Goabadik under the provincial government’s education reforms will see a new classroom constructed this year.
“The new classroom is a commitment of Morobe government and the funding will be made known once the 2020 MPG budget is approved by the respective national departments in Port Moresby,” he said.
Saonu was accompanied by community leader Masam Som, Nawaeb education officers, Goabadik village elders and MPG officers to witness the ground breaking ceremony.
Named Saonu Primary School, the school is part of Saonu’s vision to provide more educational facilities for Morobeans to make
way for more children to be educated.
Saonu urged the people of Goabadik to partner with education authorities in the district and teaching staff of the new school to build the facilities using their own initiative for the sake of their children’s education.
“The people of Goabadik must fully support and back this new school because it will boost Nawaeb in the future to be the forefront of development in Morobe,” he said.
Saonu said he stands ready to work with the LLG president of Nabak and Nawaeb MP Kennedy Wenge to ensure construction of the school is completed soon and enrolments begin as well.
“MPG will assist with school fees later this year once the New National Governments education policy is rolled out and urge all parents to be patient for the newly structured TFF policy component to take effect in 2020,” he explained.

One thought on “New school for Nawaeb children

  • Thank you my good Governor. We need a school and also we need a mini hospital there too. Situm health centre is too far away. Without an ambulance, many of our people from Musom down to marambi cannot get to the health centre. If they do, the Situm river has not bridge and it is hard to cross over during floods. Nabak LLG and people from Kemen village down to Gobadik, must have a school at Gobadick and a mini hospital at Gobadick. On top of this, we need a 100 meters telikom tower to enable us to access network. We are close to Lae, Bumayong but so far due to no mobile network. Thank you my Governor.
