MT Wilhelm High School in Gembogl sub-district, Simbu province, received K100,000 from the rehabilitation education school infrastructure (RESI) funds and a new vehicle.
Kundiawa-Gembogl MP Joe Mek Teine committed the money for the school to give the much-needed facelift to its deteriorating facilities.
The money was from the district’s K2 million RESI funds Mr Teine received from Education Minister James Marape last month.
Other schools in Kundiawa-Gembogl district are set to receive similar financial assistance from the RESI funds, according to Kundiawa-Gembogl district office.
Mt Wilhelm High School head teacher, Gabriel Aina, and school board of governors chairman, Fr Joe Aglua, acknowledged Mr Teine’s efforts.
They said school dormitories, classrooms and other buildings were deteriorating, adding that the money would be put into good use to give some much needed facelift.
Mr Aina said the assistance would help students not onlyfrom Kundiawa-Gembogl district, but throughout Simbu province, and neighbouring provinces to get good education.
Senior teachers at the school Vincent Don told The National that Simbu Catholic bishop Anton Bal, Catholic Education division and Simbu provincial Education division were happy with the MP’s assistance.
