Students encouraged to take up medicine, science

Youth & Careers

AS the country’s continues to grow at a rapid rate, there is a high demand for students to pursue careers in medicine particularly medical doctors.
This was according to United Church Bishop Reverend Kerry Arua when urging students at a school in Porebada, Central, recently when receiving their grade 10 certificates.
Speaking at the Red Scar High School Rev Kerry said: “I am encouraging you to be committed to your education and become doctors and scientists because currently our country does not produce enough to meet the growing demand.
“As a church, we are providing a chaplain to the school as part of our moral duty in ensuring students receive Christian education and develop both your mental and spiritual growth.
“Use the hands that he gives you to achieve positive results.”
Rev Kerry added that the United Church plans to establish its own university in Central in coming years.
The Red Scar High School is an education agency of the United Church. The high school was established during the Australian colonial rule in 1969 to provide education to the Motuan communities.
It has served the Hiri-west community and many parts of the Central.
The school will turn 50 years next year and is a level 7 school with 17 teachers.
