A signing ceremony in Port Moresby yesterday between the Japanese Ambassador Satoshi Nakajima and head teachers Benjamin Roimb, John Andakis and Joseph Paul, of Kinjib Primary, St Michael’s Catholic Primary in Western Highlands and Tatana Elementary in National Capital District, confirmed the K961,203 grant.
