THE Aseki Lutheran Primary School in Menyamya, Morobe, has trained 23 trainees of Balob Teachers College on filing system and monthly returns.
The trainees learnt new skills after a month practical at the rural school.
They were trained in an in-service by head teacher John Kwara and senior teachers.
The trainee teachers returned last weekend after four weeks of practical.
Grade three class patron Wilson Anonga said, however, the trainees needed more up-skilling on new standards-based curriculum (SBC).
“A lot of them need to learn more on SBC and attend more in-services,” he said.
“Experienced teachers are okay, but, the trainees need to improve more on setting timetable and normal lessons.” Anonga said the trainees helped taught students from grade three to eight.
“Grade seven is subject-based, so a trainee took two subjects each,” he said.
“For grade three to six, two trainees were assigned to a class.”
Anonga said the trainee teachers also helped lay concrete floor of a classroom for a project as part of their training.
He said being an agency school, the trainees visited nearby communities, had fellowship with churches and donated food items to villagers.
“The villagers, in return, donated food and helped them during their training,” he said.
“They have helped a lot during the four weeks.
“I only concentrated on children’s assessment while they took my class in all the lessons.
“They took-off my workload of looking after the class.”
