Uniforms tailor-made for Waigani Christian students


Waigani Christian College, a private school in Port Moresby, is offering uniforms at lower prices because it has a tailor.
Single mother Rose Walep, 38, from Jiwaka, joined the school from Waigani Christian kindergarten where she was a teaching assistant
She used to be a pastor after dropping out of grade 8 in 1991 and spent the next few years with Evangelical Brotherhood church where she learnt to sew.
“I chose to learn garment making and textile, not with the intention of making money but to use the skill to sew the clothing one desires,” Walep said.
Sewing nice clothes makes people happy, she said.
“I am a person who is content with life and want to bless others too.
“This will be my second year as tailor for Waigani Christian College after the school moved me from being a kindergarten teacher to be in charge of sewing school uniforms
“I sew uniforms according to the number of students registered or the payments made.
“I have received a lot of orders from students and I’ve been sewing their uniforms.”
She said the school uniforms are selling at K30 each and the sports uniform for K100.
She also sews graduation gowns.
