A Board Chairman from one of Morobe’s top Secondary school has raised concerns about the importance of adding value to schools in Lae.
Lae Secondary’s Steve Mesa highlighted improvements to school infrastructure is the key to lifting and maintaining standards.
The school is expected to open a new library next month, and more teachers’ houses are being built.
For Lae Secondary School, adding Value to teaching children has been a priority for many years.
Like any other secondary school in the country, student numbers continue to grow every year, increasing by several hundred every year, putting a strain on the infrastructure it already has.
Board Chairman, Steve Mesa is tasked to ensure that the school functions at its peak, continually improves to help students perform better at school.
He said academic excellence is always their priority.
He believes that infrastructure is important, when aiming for excellence.
The school has invested money from schools fees paid by parents, before the Free Education Policy, into new teachers house and school vehicles.
There is already a 4 x 2 bedroom house, built from school fees paid by the parents.
The districts administration’s support in funding a Library and a duplex has also helped.
But, it has been school fee funded infrastructure that has pushed teachers and students to perform at a higher standard.
Even with the school being featured in-group fights and other illicit activities, it’s has established a Zero Tolerance Policy.
