NATIONAL Polytechnic Institute of PNG acting director Graham Bidang says students need to devote more time to their studies by avoiding unproductive activities.
The institute’s governing council deputy chairman Mathew Pobaya backed Mr Bidang’s advice to students and said: “Time management is important. Those who manage their time well will succeed.
“If you spend your time unwisely, you will pay the price (for failure). Only those who are truly honest, hard working and determined will succeed.”
He also prepared a paper on time management for distribution to new students in a special assembly yesterday.
Addressing the institute’s student body and staff, governing council chairman Kila Vuivagi reminded students to uphold their signed code of conduct that included zero tolerance on alcohol consumption and use of illicit drugs.
“A breach of the code or policy will result in automatic expulsion,” he said.
