THE Education Department has recognised 26 high and secondary schools in the country who have put in a lot of effort to improve their academic performance.
Secretary Dr Uke Kombra presented the Best Academic Performing School and the Most Improved School awards to these schools based on the grade 10 and grade 12 examination results.
The top 10 academic performing schools for grade 10 are Oksapmin High School in West Sepik, St Charles Lwanga High (NCD), Gordon Secondary School (NCD), Cameron Secondary School (Milne Bay), Jubilee Catholic Secondary (NCD), Manus Secondary (Manus), Busu Secondary (Morobe), Mercy Secondary (East Sepik), and Mt Hagen Secondary (WHP).
The five most improved schools for grade 10 are Kompiam High School (Enga), Sacred Heart Tapini Secondary (Central), Misima High (Milne Bay), Kiriwina High (Milne Bay) and Yano High (Central).
The 10 Academic Performing schools for grade 12 are Port Moresby National High (NCD), Marienville Secondary (NCD), Kerevat National High (ENB), Wawin National High (Morobe), Sogeri National High (Central), Aiyura National High (EHP), Cameron Secondary (Milne Bay), St Ignatius Secondary (West Sepik), Passam National High (ESP), and Mt Hagen Secondary (WHP).

“We want to recognise those schools which are making more effort to make a difference in the students’ life and academic life, so we want to reinforce schools to put in more effort towards students’ education,” Kombra said.
“Out of the 301 high and secondary schools that sat for the grade 10 national examinations and 164 secondary schools that set for the grade 12 exams, we know there are many challenges that are affecting schools in their own contexts.”
