TTQ is an alternative educational activity which integrates learning and entertainment, allowing schools to compete academically through quizzing and debates.
With agreement to air on TVWAN for this season, partners Melanesian Multimedia Company and Big Rooster have begun recording.
At least 16 schools in Port Moresby have taken on the challenge to go on the national television show.
The competition in Port Moresby will see the winning school representing the National Capital District to the regional competition, going up against winning schools from other provinces.
Launching the event today was the Secretary of Department of Community Development, Anna Solomon.
“Don’t confine your learning only at school…broaden your knowledge using opportunities like this (TTQ),” she said to the students present.
She commended them for their participation which she said will inspire other children in PNG.
Solomon said not many children were aware of laws in place to safeguard their interests, such as the Lukautim Pikinini Act.
Avenues like TTQ are opportunities to use for greater awareness among children and increase their own knowledge.
Solomon also noted a children’s forum to take place later this year to display talents of ordinary PNG children.
