MORE than 600 students of Ningerum Primary School in North Fly, Western, were all smiles after their double classroom was fully renovated and re-opened for use on Tuesday.
North Fly MP James Donald funded its renovation using K100,000 from district services improvement programme (DSIP) funds.
The building contains four classrooms and two teacher’s offices.
Donald said they were built more than 20 years ago using tax credit from Ok Tedi mine but were never maintained till 2018 when he organised funding for renovation.
He told students, teachers and those who gathered for reopening that Government was focusing on education as one of its top priorities and maintaining classrooms was part of it.
Donald said maintaining public infrastructure had been lacking over the years, and as a result, most facilities had deteriorated to the point where they could not be used.
He said his district would put funding into fixing deteriorating public facilities such as classrooms, hospitals, government offices and buildings under its infrastructure, education and health budgets.
Donald said Ningerum town upgrade work, now underway, would see all its access roads fixed, health centre maintained and equipped with necessary equipment and water supply for the entire town.
He said similar work would begin in other rural district seats to bring back public servants to continue to provide basic services to the people.
Meanwhile, local contractor Priority Engineering, which renovated the double classroom building for the school, urged students to look after the facility and not to spoil it with graffiti and other forms of vandalism.
