Gulf Provincial Government subsidizes Schools fees for 2020

GULF Governor Chris Haiveta announced that the Gulf Provincial Government will subsidise parent’s component of the school fees this year to ease the burden on parents.

Governor Haiveta said he understands that parents have been reliant on the Tuition Fee Free (TFF) policy over the last four years, and its abolishment has placed an unforeseen burden on parents this year.

The Governor said the National Government has scrapped off the Tuition Fee Free policy and instead introduced a subsidised school fees scheme wherein the National Government contributes 63% and the parents will fork-out the balance of 37%. Mr Haiveta said the Gulf Provincial Government will subsidise the parents’ component by contributing 20% of the 37%, while parents pay only 17%.

Mr Haiveta said the Provincial Government in its budget this year has set aside K2.2million to accommodate this.

He made this announcement in Kerema and Kaintiba stations respectively on Monday last week while launching the provincial governments subsidised air services scheme to serve the mountain region of the province and remote Westport areas.

He also told the people of Kaintiba LLG that the Bema High School will be upgraded to Secondary School while Kaintiba, Hawabango and Kanabea Primary Schools will be upgraded to High Schools.

The Governor announced that work on delivering projects for this year has now started with Kaintiba and will continue in other LLGs of the province. Mr Haiveta was accompanied on the trip by a delegation of the Provincial Administrator and his two deputies and several members of the PEC including the Deputy Governor Morris Taudevin and his Officers.
