THE top grade 10 students from high schools in the Yangoru-Saussia district of East Sepik will go on to grade 11 and grade 12 at the new School of Excellence, says MP Richard Maru.
The first batch of students is currently pursuing the mathematics and science strand at the school located at the Yangoru station this year.
The school is supported by the Australian government and built at a cost of K18 million.
The district plans to send these students to universities after completing grade 12.
“The district wanted to build the School of Excellence because only 1 per cent of students from Yangoru-Saussia get selected to universities,” he said.
“That suggested that we have a poor academic performance. So we decided to pilot a new concept called the district school of excellence.
“Out of our seven high schools in Yangoru-Saussia, the top 10 per cent will come here only if they have the academic merit and potential to enter a university. Every student who comes here is a boarding student who pays K2,000.”
Maru said work has started on the next phase of the school which would accommodate students interested in studying humanities.
“We expect 80 students to come here next year and study Economics, English or Law,” he said.
