SCHOOLS in the Tambul-Nebilyer district of Western Highlands province have received a total of K1.2 million from their MP Benjamin Poponawa.
The money would be divided among 76 schools – three high schools, one vocational centre, 35 community and primary schools and 37 elementary schools in Upper Kagul, Lower Kagul, Upper Nebilyer and Lower Nebilyer.
District education adviser Joseph Iri Mangbil said he, with the support from the MP, was expecting the teachers and the schools administration to perform well as a result of the fundings.
Mr Mangbil said the district had no natural resources to develop its economy, therefore, investing millions of kina in education was its only choice and Mr Poponawa was showing the way.
He said education was an agent of change and the millions that were invested in schools were worthwhile.
