School achieves goal in graduating pioneer students


A TOTAL of 15 pioneer grade 12 students graduated from Zion Zeal Christian Academy in Port Moresby on Oct 29.
The school also graduated its fourth batch of grade 10s and sixth batch of grade eights.
Principal Jonathan Kapak said the school started in 2006 with 15 students and had expanded, offering more young people a chance to be educated.
He said the school’s vision was to mould students from early childhood learning to grade 12 and had achieved its vision this year.
Kapak said the school’s motto “Promoting Godly principles” was incorporated across its curriculum.
He said the school had a subject called God and Bible which was taught from kindergarten to grade 12 which aimed to instill Bible-based principles and values in students.
He said Zion Zeal had a proud history and produced students who were taking courses such as law at the University of Papua New Guinea and some taking accounting at Divine Word University and the University of Technology as well.
“Last year, we had five students from this school, our grade 10 students who were selected to national high schools and the school of excellence and this was one of the records we set.”
He said the school had ensured students were able to continue their lessons through assignments and home lesson material during the Covid-19 pandemic.
