Baisu Jail Commander, Timbi Kaugla, received the machine and acknowledged the Provincial Government that the school will comply with the Correctional Service’s rehabilitation programs.

Mr. Kaugla said the school will give the prisoners the opportunity to have a second chance in life.

The community can provide free land, timber and carpenters to build the school.

So far the Province has 26 high schools and more than 8 Secondary schools.

The Provincial Government, led by Governor Paias Wingti, is supporting the National Government’s Policy to make education accessible and affordable to every child.

They are supporting the drive by building high schools in each district and community in the Province.

A Primary school at Pabrabuk in Tambul Nebilyer electorate also received a portable sawmill to build a new high school.
