Kavieng children proud of school buildings

​School children at Lasiliba Primary School in Kavieng, New Ireland Province were the proud youngsters to witness the opening of their new school library, school hall and two teachers houses.

The properties were officially opened by the local MP, Ben Micah, in the presence of Governor Sir Julius Chan, PEC members and Chiefs last Friday.

Headmistress of Lasiliba Primary School, Remis Eron, told the delegation that the completion of the building projects were a long time coming and the people are now excited they have come to fruition.

She said the projects were possible through the donation of K100,000 by Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, during his visit to the New Ireland in 2013. 

“We did not give up. We continued to follow up until we were able to receive the funds through the National Gaming Control Board and we ensured that we put the money to its rightful use”.

Governor Sir Julius congratulated the communities saying: “Today shows your commitment, dedication and honesty by implementing the K100,000 commitment. You ought to give yourselves a pat on the back for your tireless effort and community partnership.”
