Secondary school gets new classroom


THE George Brown Secondary School in East New Britain has a new four-in-one classroom, thanks to the Gazelle development authority (DDA).
Speaking at its opening on Thursday, Gazelle MP Jelta Wong said it was important to have classrooms of quality for proper learning.
“It is about an asset and should be given time and quality to last for years,” he said.
“When we fix classrooms, we mean business.
“We talk about quality and money.”
The classroom was built at a cost of K500,000 using funds from the district services improvement programme (DSIP).
Wong said George Brown Secondary was an old school and many people who had passed through were good citizens and contributing to the development of the country.
The school was elevated to secondary school status in 2018 to cater for the increase in student numbers.
Other schools in the district that will see new four-in-one classrooms built to the same cost are Tudungan and Warakindam primary schools.
The St Joseph’s Napapar Primary School also opened its three-in-one classroom on Thursday funded by the Japanese government.
