Menyamya High School is set to become anther Secondary School to help cater for students’in districts.
Improverments’ tothe schools infrastructure have been completed to allowthe first batch of grade eleven’s next year.
The school spends a lot on vehicle hire to transport materials.
The school’s principal, Casper Nani, from Yangoru inthe East Sepik has been teaching atthe school for over five years.
“The school is changing into Secondary status,” he said. “Cost of transportation is a big hindrance;the trucks that bring material up from Lae charge around One-thousand kina.”
Nani saysthe school struggles to meet costs for hiring vehicles to bring in school supplies for teaching. The first grade 11 students’will use a new double classroom including a new girl’s dorm and computer lab.
The School stands against a backdrop of poor service delivery. The Menyamya health center’s facilities can’t cater for the growing population.
Much ofthe district’s roads remain unattended and its sub health center’s are decaying.
The Menyamya High School is a government’service that has been functioning relatively well despitethe challenges ofthe remoteness ofthe school.
