PNG Government moves to Offer FODE in existing Secondary and High Schools

 Papua New Guinea Prime Minister  James Marape, MP, has given more information on the Government’s plans to bring Flexible Open Distance Education (FODE) right next door to people all over the country.

He gave the additional information to the people of National Capital District’s Gerehu Suburb when he attended the ground breaking ceremony for the upgrade of the Gerehu Drive Road to a four-lane road that will connect to the Nigibata Road.

“Facilities for FODE will be opened in existing secondary and high school institutions around the country,” Prime Minister Marape said.

“We want to give you that second chance to get the education you deserve, therefore, the Government will be providing the FODE materials for free.

“Those who have left school earlier than expected can continue their education and complete grades eight, nine, 10, 11 and 12.

“And while you upgrade you marks and finish your high school and secondary school, we will also provide you courses on how to start up your own small business through FODE as well.”

Prime Minister Marape said they also had a chance to compete with those coming out of the formal education system for a place at universities and colleges.

He said that was a system that he enabled when he was Minister for Education in 2008 and 2009 and that system was working today.

Prime Minister Marape appealed to all young women and men to stop alcohol and drug abuse, and also stop perpetrating all forms of violence in the communities. 

He urged them to go back to school to make something of themselves.
