St Michael’s Primary School at Warabung in the Yangoru – Saussia District, now has some new buildings after 30 years.
The double classrooms and a teacher’s house were funded through DSIP funding worth K20, 000.
The School Board also hopes to introduce the Education Department’s weekly Classroom Broadcast on EMTV.
Warabung Primary School is located in the West Yangoru District. The classrooms were built by German Missionaries in the early 1980’s, and since then, the school has seen no changes.
Despite the school not receiving much needed government funding for three decades, the students were able to perform well.
The school hopes to further improve the quality of teaching by introducing the Education Department’s Classroom Broadcast Program that’s televised on EMTV weekly.
The issue was brought to the attention of local MP and Minister for Trade, Commerce and Industry, Richard Maru, when he was there to officially open two new double classrooms and a staff house.
Minister Maru told the people of Warabung that they will soon get a new high school. He agreed that quality learning is important, stating that they must perform well because every year, there are 18, 000 Grade 12’s.
Of this, only 6000 places are available at higher learning institutions.
Someone who welcomed the news of the new high school is Joseph Kutji,a former student of Warabung Primary School.
He did his grade six in 1972.
The Joint District Budget Priority Committee has agreed that the new high school will be constructed at Yangoru government Station.
