“The workshop assisted us teachers to look at issues facing students socially, academically, even spiritually,” she said.
“How we can use our leadership and governance capabilities to help them in the classroom.”
There were 10 primary school teachers from Vanimo, five from Aitape, in West Sepik, and 25 from Wewak, in East Sepik.
