UPNG students enter 3rd week of boycotting classes

Despite circulars for students and staff to return to class this morning, classrooms remain empty today.
According to the Director for UPNG Public Relations Mr Jim Robins, the directive was not compulsory as it was up to students to decide whether they wanted to continue their boycott or not. 
“The UPNG administration will not be intimidated if the students continue to boycott classes, lectures and tutorials will go ahead as planned in the academic calendar” he said. 
However there was still confusion amongst staff members as only a handful turned up today but could not teach as students were not in attendance. 
The lecture rooms were all empty and some of the rooms were still locked up including the library.
Majority of the students were gathering in their provincial groups with their leaders to discuss the next cause of action as they continue to boycott classes.
Meanwhile one academic staff who refuses to be named says, she will not conduct any lectures as she feels the situation with the students need to be addressed realistically before classes resume. PNGFM / PNG Today
