School set for K1mil facelift


A SECONDARY school in Lae will be getting a K1 million facelift under the Digicel PNG Foundation’s whole school sustainability programme, an official says.
Busu Secondary School principal George Nobel said the school entered into an agreement with the foundation last December to undertake six projects under foundation’s school programme.
The projects include an eight-in-one classroom equipped with chairs and tables, a female ablution block, solar generator for backup power, a bore water well, two water tanks and the general beautification of the school.
Nobel said the initial plan was to see the completion of the first two projects at least by the end of the second school term, but the Covid-19 had slowed the progress.
He said the foundation had already awarded the contract for the classroom and the ablution block.
“The contractor is doing a geo-technical survey and will get approval from the building board first before work starts,” he said.
Through this partnership, Nobel delivered an in-service on school management in Port Moresby, last December to Tubuserea Primary School.
