Share the News

The Wabag District Administration brokered peace between the church and the Provincial Government.

This week, however, several projects were launched worth over K100,000.

Hundreds gathered in Surinki outside of Wabag town and joined the school in the celebration.

Wabag MP Robert Ganim and Enga Governor Peter Ipatas were amongst the list of special guests.

It was a joy filled day for the staffs, students, parents and community of the Surinki Lutheran High School.

The Wabag district administration funded the school with K100, 000 and a sawmill which saw the opening of the new school library, 2 staff houses and a new boys dormitory.

The projects were funded under the District Education and School Learning Improvement Programs.

Due to allegations of gross funding abuse by the church, church run institutions and programs were ineffectively funded in the province causing many to cease operating.

This school was one that never gave up the fight to provide education services for the 400 plus students from Surinki and surrounding communities.

However, this has now become a thing of the past with the launch of these projects.

The local MP urged the school administration, board and especially the community, to take ownership of the properties and look after them for generations to come.

Governor Ipatas urged the people to support the district administration and other government agencies to roll out effective services in the district.

He said education will always be made priority in the province.

There was exchanging of gifts at the end of the day.

The governor presented K50, 000 to the school including school uniforms.

The local MP presented K150, 000 to both the primary and high schools and, computers for the teachers.

He also made a commitment of K300,000.
