The National, Tuesday October 29th, 2013
THE normally noisy Waigani Christian School’s new campus was so quiet yesterday one could hear a pin drop.
For two hours – from 8.30am to 10.30am – the attention of the 27 Grade 8 students was on their English exam papers in the partially completed classroom.
They were the first intake in the school’s 20-year history of Grade 8 students to sit for national examinations.
Sitting quietly outside, unknown to the students, was the school’s founder and director Benjamin Mul, glowing with pride and emotion at his young charges. Next to him was principal Agnes Seiyari who was equally touched by the occasion.
Mul, the former North Wahgi MP, founded the school in 1993. It has over the years become well known for its high quality Christian education.
Waigani Christian School started as a private institution.
