 THE Western Highlands provincial government is prioritising infrastructure development in all schools in the province, Governor Pais Wingti says.

He said this last Friday at the Kimininga Seventh-Day Adventist Church headquarters in Mt Hagen.

Wingti said the SDA Church-run high school in Paglum would be the first to receive infrastructure development.

“My vision is to see that schools are equipped so that students will not face difficulties like space problems in classrooms or dormitories,” Wingti said. He said the provincial government would focus on building and raising the standard of schools. 

He urged school boards, chairmen and principals to take ownership of projects.

Wingti said only good people would be in charge of developments.

“I’m serious about school developments and I need good leaders who will support and implement my plans,” he said.

“We all have to cooperate and this goes to the board of governors, principals and teachers who are taking the lead.” He said schools should come up with their development plans so they could be assisted.

“Only a lack of management will destroy the good plans and my appeal to you is to look after what is given to you,” he said.
