School teachers in the Nawaeb District were happy to resume term two classes today after a month’s holiday following the national isolation period by the government.
According to the Schools’ Administration, they couldn’t provide hand sanitisers and masks for the students because they don’t have money.
Today, the Nawaeb District Development Authority visited a few schools in Labuta and Nabak LLG and supported them with masks, hand sanitisers and temperature guns.
Situm Primary School in the Labuta LLG of Morobe’s Nawaeb District was the first school visited by the DDA this morning, they delivered hand sanitizers and temperature guns for 1300 students and 31 teachers to use.
The school was packed to capacity following the resumption of classes for term two, after a month holiday following the national isolation period by the government.
The School’s Head Teacher, John Gemotang said the teachers are happy to resume term two today and would try their best to make up for missed classes.
The term one of the 2021 academic year was cut short with a four-week holiday that began on the 22nd of March, following the government’s plan to control the surge in COVID-19 cases in the country.
The government uplifted the isolation period today, allowing all schools to resume classes for term two today.
Hobu Primary School and Nawaeb Lutheran High School from Nabak LLG were two other schools the Nawaeb DDA visited.
The DDA also handed over the masks, sanitisers and temperature guns to the two schools.
Nawaeb MP, Kennedy Wenge says the District would continue to support all the schools from Elementary to High Schools with such support to maintain covid-19 preventive measures in schools.
