Panguna Primary School will see new infrastructure that will improve teaching and learning.
This is a commitment from National Tourism Minister, Tobias Kulang.
Mr Kulang has made a commitment of K100,000.
This compliments the commitment made by Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, in 2014 during his Goodwill Visit to the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.
The Prime Minister committed K500,000 to assist Panguna Primary School for new infrastructure and that was classrooms, that have already been built.
The Prime Minster made this commitment following the request from Philip Miriori, President of the Panguna Mekamui.
“I saw that there was no proper classroom for the children, so I have to make the commitment as a way forward for their education,” he said.
During the National Tourism Minister’s ministerial visit to the Autonomous Region of Bougainville recently, Tobias Kulang made another commitment in Panguna.
One hundredth thousand kina is for new teacher’s houses that will add value to teachers work for quality education.
“My commitment compliments the one made by Prime Minister in 2014. Teachers work is important in education, so we have to assist them,” said Kulang.
Meanwhile, in appreciation, the Panguna Mekamui’s have named the school after the Prime Minister, as Peter O’Neill Primary School, as they claimed he was the first Prime Minister to have visited them since the civil war on the island of Bougainville.
