Normal, Youth & Careers

CHILDREN at an Eastern Highlands school have been told to set goals and prioritise if they want to succeed in life.
“If you want to become somebody in future and market your knowledge and skills to outside world, you have to start today,” Goroka MP Thompson Harokaqveh said.
Mr Harokaqveh was addressing 118 grade eight students who graduated at Gama Lutheran Primary School early this month.
“Children have every right to be educated, therefore, parents have the obligations to meet the requirements and provide the best treatment for children,” Mr Harokaqveh said.
Schools inspector Robert Kokao told the students that education was vital to guide them.
Mr Kokao showed his appreciation of the school’s performance by depositing K10,000 of State fund into the school’s bank account.
He urged parents, staff and administrations to collaborate to promote the school to level eight by 2012.
Brian Aogoyaga of Lufa district was the dux of the school.
More than 300 people were present for the occasion.
