Baguale Primary School, a remote school in the Nipa Kutubu District in Southern Highlands, will now enjoy the luxury of a new double classroom.
School Head Teacher, Brendon Boh, says this is the first learning facility since its establishment in 1999.
Sitting Nipa Kutubu MP, Pesap Jeffrey Komal, visited the school to cut the ribbon, signifying the official opening of the learning facility.
Baguale Primary School is a level 4 school with a teaching staff of 8.
The new double classroom is under the Nipa Kutubu District Educational Sector project, and built at the cost of K100,000.
Other schools like Movee, Orokam, Tanuga, Fogomai and Tubo also received similar support including Kutubu Secondary School.
Komal made it known that every ruling government is given funding to implement its policies and improve its level of service delivery in districts despite geographic locations.
Nipa Kutubu District has a massive landmass and shares borders with Hela, Western, Enga and Gulf provinces. The sitting MP says it’s never been easy to implement projects with the increasing population who’ve been neglected by past governments.
Kutubu LLG President, John Pipi Kila, says the facility will now boost its capacity and provide the support the school needs.
The school is putting up to its current facilities, and Head Teacher Boh says Baguale Primary School hopes to have more support to help educate the growing population.
Since its establishment in 1999, consecutive governments have shown no support to improve the learning environment for students attending the school.
