After many years of disruption, Komo Seventh Day Adventist Primary School has finally seen its pioneers graduate.
Komo-Magarima MP, Francis Potabe, and Deputy Governor, Thomas Potabe, were a part of the ceremony with an emphasis of making education the next big project, as the LNG Project would not benefit everyone.
Nine Grade Eight pioneers passed out yesterday proving all odds wrong and embracing the purpose of education.
Potape flew into the remote school to witness this history in the making moment for the people of Komo.
“Komo people can no longer sit down and wait for LNG, education must be prioritised and school built,” MP Potape said.
The local MP has committed K200,000 for this year and next year for building infrastructures.
The first Grade Eight graduation coincided with the opening of four classrooms and a teacher’s house through a joint funding of the District and LLGs.
The Free Education Policy has seen its enrollment rise from 50 to over 300 students. This level four school is set to make precedent with political and local leaders pledging to build the schools capacity.
