Students encouraged to be creators


National Capital District (NCD) Governor Powes Parkop has encouraged students from Jubilee Catholic Secondary School in Port Moresby to be innovators and creators.
He told the students that they were not only future leaders but leaders of today.
“Today is your time as well, be creative and innovative about what you what to be in the future,” he said.
Parkop urged students to engage in agriculture, small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and sports when they completed their secondary education.
“We want to go into business, now our Government is very strong on SME, sports is a very strong foundation too, and I would like to encourage you young people to be champions in sports,” he said.
Parkop said since he had become the governor, he had pushed for education in NCD to be decentralised so that they could take ownership and responsibility and drive this important partway for the young people.
He said the commission and the minister for Education had signed a memorandum of agreement for the commission to be responsible for education in NCD and work with the Education Department.
“I have set out the vision very clearly that the priority and vision for NCDC taking over education is to deliver quality and universal education.”
