It’s day 3 at Morobe’s Education Division, and some Morobe teachers will now be travelling to their home provinces for holidays.
Following two days of queuing in front of the Office to get leave entitlements, teachers’ queries have been attended to.
3 days ago, teachers queued in front of the Morobe Education Division in long lines, impatient and frustrated over the long wait to get their leave entitlements.
After 3 days of waiting, lines start to get shorter in front of the provincial education office.
Over half the number of teachers present at Morobe’s education office in the last two days have received their leave entitlements.
However, Lenny Emmanuel; a teacher from Bulolo’s Gaore Primary School, has revealed he was given a lesser amount of fares compared to what he got two years ago.
Bulolo’s Gaore Primary School is located in the Garaina area, a remote part of the district where transport services is only accessible by air or foot.
Education and Health service workers, who provide services to the people out there, rely highly on the government for entitlements.
His story is the same told by others who have raised concerns on other areas of improvement when acquiring leave entitlements.
