Enga Teachers College, in its recent 7th Graduation, saw teachers graduating under Inclusive Education training.
ETC and Kandiu Teachers College in East Sepik Province are the only two teachers colleges providing this service.
Enga Teachers College recently graduated 106 teachers in Diploma in Primary and Elementary teaching.
Twelve graduates are among the 106 who graduated with Diplomas in Elementary and Primary teaching.
These twelve students also studied inclusive education under a joint program by Callan Services, for people living with special needs. The twelve students are fortunate to study sign languages and such to be able to teach a student who has special needs.
The Governor General, Grand Chief Sir Bob Dadae, was the guest of honour at ETCs 7th graduation.
The Governor General was pleased with the commitment and dedication of the Provincial Government in education in the province.
He urged the school to uphold moral and ethics as a curriculum, and for graduands to be role models of the future generation.
Enga Governor, Sir Peter Ipatas said he has trust in the leadership and running of the college which has seen over 800 teachers who have graduated in primary teaching.
Despite being a National Institution, Sir Peter said he will still invest in education.
Enga is reported to have more than enough primary and elementary school teachers than any other provinces.
The Province’s commitment in education has also attracted development partners such as the Australian High Commission.
A level-four lecture block that is under construction is funded by the Australian High Commission for K10 Million.
