Teaching aids vital for early learning

Education

PROVIDING essential tools to teachers ensures that quality teaching is delivered at an early age for students, an official says.
ExxonMobil community development manager Sisa Kini said this during a two-week training of 25 teachers from six early learning centres near the liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Boera, Central.
“Building the capacity of our teachers goes a long way to assist our children who are at a pivotal age of being curious and eager to learn,” Kini said.
ExxonMobil PNG has partnered with Buk bilong Pikinini to deliver early childhood education since 2016.
Buk Bilong Pikinini founder and chair Anne-Sophie Hermann said ExxonMobil PNG was a critical partner in driving early childhood education.
“Our partnership with ExxonMobil has enabled us to grow our library services as well as continually provide training to all our early childhood educators within the communities,” she said.
“Over the years, we have also engaged them (ExxonMobil) to assist with teacher training programmes for our pre-schools near the LNG plant site.
“As part of ExxonMobil’s national content, the training was staged within the community at Boera village.
“Building the capacity of our teachers goes a long way to assist our children who are at a pivotal age of being curious and eager to learn.”
