National Education Minister, Nick Kuman, says that education in Papua New Guinea has progressed over time, since Independence in 1975.
While there are several issues still to be fixed, many have been achieved.
The National Education Minister was the guest of honour at today’s Goroka Grammar School Graduation of Grades One, Five and Eight.
“With the National Government focus on education, there has been growth and development in this sector,” he said.
However some issues that needs to be fixed, is the link of private education with the National Government for quality education outcome under one standard curriculum.
“All privately run education institutions in PNG, are to ensure, we operate under one curriculum,” he said.
Minister Kuman thanked Goroka Grammar School for partnering with the National Government in delivering quality education.
“I thanked Goroka Grammar School for implementing the standard based curriculum, “he said.
School Principal, Nelson Huanaromo, acknowledged the National Government’s support in education.
He said Goroka Grammar School will adapt to any changes, required by state.
“Goroka Grammar School is a proud PNG school and we implemented what the National Government requires in terms of the curriculum. These make the students feel more Papua New Guinean, so that they can fit in well to their societies,” he said.
