HAGARA Primary School, the oldest in the National Capital District, is to get a new K600,000 classroom.
Funding has been provided by Moresby Northwest MP Michael Malabag who was at the school on Monday for a ground-breaking ceremony.
Headmaster Moses Modekewau said there had been no infrastructure development in the school in the past two decades.
“For the last 20 years, nothing came to the children of Moitu-Koita. We greatly appreciate this initiative,” he said.
He thanked Malabag for remembering the school and urged him to do more.
“Our teachers also face problems with accommodation. They travel from as far as Morata and 9-Mile.
“Please include them in your budget next time as they are one of the most important resources involved in the development of our children.”
Malabag promised to assist the school in any way possible.
“You can see from the current state of the school that a lot of work needs to be done,” he said.
“The library will be extended. It is a very important building as it reinforces knowledge.”
The school has 926 students with 31 teachers.
