THE Salvation Army Primary School in Port Moresby put on their life skills learning in the classroom to show off to their parents and friends over the weekend.
Principal Osmond Bai told The National this was the second time the school held its arts and craft market day which he says was a success last year when it was first held on trail basis.
“This will be an annual event for the school around this time of the year because we have seen that students enjoyed the company of their parents and made them responsible individuals in making things for themselves,” he said.
Mr Bai said the school administrator Julie Alley and deputy principal Mrs Evera were in charge of the event.
This year, the number of stalls had increased to 40 from 18 stalls lsat year and this proved that parents were supportive of such events.
The National went around the stalls and sure enough, there was plenty of food to eat from cakes to rice and stew, and also  soft drinks.
You could even get even  get your face painted or get yourself
a nice handcrafted bilums, laplaps or necklaces.
“Every stall will have to give 10% of what they get to the school to maintain the school properties,” Mr Bai said. The school has 735 students from prep to Grade Eight.
