Since 1990s, the NCD Education Division has only been engaged in maintaining and constructing existing school facilities in NCD.
But today marks a new era where, with the support of the education department, NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, the Seventh Day Adventist Church has been able to open a new Secondary School in Port Moresby.
Koiari Park Secondary Adventist School was officially opened today in Port Moresby.
The school, located a few kilometers outside Port Moresby city, will now open its gates for this year’s PNG education calendar of term three.
For the first two terms of the schooling year, students enrolled in the school have been using other facilities to learn, but as of today, they are set to be seated in proper classrooms to be educated.
School children displayed dance items and other traditional dances to welcome VIPs, Guests and delegates to the Grand Opening of the Koiari Park Adventist Secondary School in Port Moresby today.
Keynote speaker of the occasion, Education Minister, Nick Kuman, emphasized the National Government’s stance and commitment in ensuring that all children in PNG attend school, and that Education is one of the important priorities of the current government.
Minister Kuman said that the opening was a significant milestone in ensuring that adequate, quality classrooms are made available for students to be educated in.
NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, said the building of the schools facilities opened today, was at an approximate cost of K7 million, and that it is a big challenge for NCD to provide adequate spaces for children in the city to access better education services.
The school will cater for Grades 9 and 10 this term three of the education calendar, and hopefully in 2016, will have similar facilities to accommodate grade 11 and 12’s to be a fully pledged secondary school in NCD.
