A remote Community in the Sinesine-Yongomugl District of Simbu needs help to complete the first High School in the area.
The Gunangi Community gave up their land for the establishment of the Suai High School.
They believe the school will provide opportunities for girls to be educated, improve the illiteracy rate in the area, and serve Government’s policy of building schools in each LLG.
Gunangi is one of the most remote areas in Simbu province.
The distance and rugged terrain does not make it easy for the locals who have put all the efforts to build a High School.
They believe the school will not only open up other government services but improve the Education level for the growing population.
It’s been 14 months since first construction began in 2017.
A total of nine buildings including two staff houses have been built using initial funding but the Education Department, District and Provincial Government.
The School was purposely built in a central location and will be supported by eleven feeder Primary Schools.
For this community, all they want is change for a better living.
Many of the resources have been exhausted to support the Schools’ construction to accept the standards, but they also want more support from authorities.
The Simbu Provincial Education adviser says the process has been slow to help fast-track the completion of standard facilities and classes are hope to commence next year.
The working community believes if authorities prioritize the School, locals are confident in completing all its necessary facilities including staff houses, dining hall, and student dormitories.
