TEACHERS around the country returned to work yesterday to prepare for the first term of the 2019 academic year, with classes scheduled to begin on Monday.
Education Minister Nick Kuman recently reminded them to be at work from today after the Government released K115 million in tuition fee-free (TFF) funds to schools.
George Kenega, the principal of the Gordon Secondary School in Port Moresby, met some of the teachers at the school yesterday.
“We will use this week to make preparations while waiting for other teachers who are still to join us,” he said.
The school has 44 teachers but only 31 attended the staff briefing with Kenega.
The remaining 13 are still making their way back to Port Moresby.
“Teachers will use this week to get their teaching programmes ready, organise themselves, get the timetables done and be allocated into their different subjects,” Kenega said
The ancillary staff will clean the classrooms and put in enough tables and chairs for students.
Dunn Vunariri, a grade 12 history teacher, said he was excited and looking forward to the academic year.

  • Good News Minister. K115m TFF Money is enough so School Administrators and Boards must NOT impose extra Fees so called PROJECT FEES. We have evidence of so much Corruptions in Schools.
    So many Projects put up by MPS with DSIP and PSIPS in all Provinces across the country
    Please stop Project Fee and Administrators wiyh School Boards do your job by Submitting Projects to your Local MPS to have your Schools funded through K10m MPS have every year.
