Remote Kailaki Primary School gets Double Classroom

Kailaki Primary School students
Kailaki Primary School is a remote school in the Koiari LLG of Central Province and it’s a 40 minutes drive from Sogeri National High School to the Kailaki village.
The school consisting of only 40 students and 3 teachers had something to celebrate and smile for yesterday during the opening of a new double classroom which was funded by the provincial government at the cost of K150, 000.
Despite the opening a new classroom, the school has bigger issues that needed to be addressed at the National and provincial level.
Head Teacher Mr Patrick Bunava said the schools is a registered school which is suppose to have 4 teachers teaching at the school but due to teachers accommodation issues, there are only 3 teachers including himself.
“It is quite difficult for teachers to teach in remote schools due to issues with accommodation but if leaders want to see children in remote areas have access to education, they have to build houses for teachers as well as classrooms”
Mr Bunava said the school also has the lowest number of students registered as most of the children in the village are kept at home to assist their parents with gardening.
“We try to bring education down to rural areas but it all comes to the parents if they want their children to get an education or not, and this is the issue across all remote schools because parents are using their children to assist them with chores at home instead of sending them to school”
He said every child has the right to education and parents cannot continue to deny the rights of a child to get educated. read more on >> PNG Education News Online
