Elementary students at Carr Memorial Adventist School have been attending classes under shady trees at the school grounds.
However, this will now be a thing of the past as the school witnessed the opening of a new set of classroom, by Moresby North West member, and Health Minister, Michael Malabag.
Proud students and parents were part of the ceremony this afternoon.
Carr Memorial Adventist School has an enrolment population of about 460 students, ranging from Elementary to Primary grades.
The school is known for its religious standards and Excellent Academic Success in NCD.
However, building infrastructure has been a problem faced in the past 5 years to cater for the increasing enrolment.
Carr’s Board Chairman Andrew Solomon said the elementary classroom opened today is a blessing for the school.
Mr Solomon called on all stakeholders to work together and build a similar classroom.
Moresby North West member Michael Malabag said classroom infrastructure is a high priority as the O’Neill-Dion government is introducing the compulsory Education Policy.
Mr Malabag also vowed to parents and teachers to purchase a bus and eradicate the transport problem faced by students’ every day.
Carr Elementary Head Teacher Lorna Mark was relieved that the classroom is set for students to use.
She says the students are now happy to sit inside a classroom and attend to their school work.
The ribbon cutting was officially done by Mrs Mark, Mr Malabag and Chairman Solomon.
