School gets dinghy to make travelling easier


MOROBE High School’s geographical isolation poses great logistical hardships for students and teachers to access academic materials and rations in Lae.
The school is located at Morobe Patrol Post near the sea border with Northern.
This has prompted Huon Gulf MP Ross Seymour to purchase a dinghy 75-horsepower engine to ease their struggles. Seymour also vowed that his district development authority would assist with K100,000 per term beginning next year.
School board chairman Paul Wari, principal Norman Apul, deputy-principal Alois Giniawe and local landowner Maya Oiye received the dinghy from Seymour and chief executive Moses Wanga on Tuesday.
Seymour told the school management that whatever was given to the school should be used for school purposes alone.
“It is tough and saddening down there in Morobe, very isolated,” he said.
