Education

THE East New Britain administration aims to have more grade 12 students graduating and making it into tertiary institutions annually.
This was revealed by the administrator and provincial education board (PEB) chairman Wilson Matava recently.
Matava said he was confident the education system in the province would produce quality grade 12 graduates that would be selected to the country’s universities and colleges.
Matava said over the last few years, the numbers had increased and he believed that the output this year would surpass the 600 grade 12 students that were selected into to tertiary institutions.
He urged parents to take ownership of their children’s learning starting from early childhood right up to the secondary level.
“The education system in East New Britain has plans for those who have missed out and will be placed in a couple of institutions that have been identified while we are working towards fast tracking plans to upgrade institutions in the province to get a quarter every year for grade 12 missing out on placing,” he said.
Matava highlighted some of the ENB-based institutions such as Bismarck Teachers’ College which specialised in training early childhood learning teachers.
Other institutions included Malaguna Technical Secondary which had been elevated to Malaguna Technical Institute and Vunamami Farmers Training Centre (VFTC) was now upgraded.
