More than 20 thousand students’ to receive uniforms

​MP for Mul Baiyer, Lumusa Koi Trape, has announced that more than 20 thousand students attending elementary to primary schools in the district will receive their uniforms shortly.

The uniforms were ordered from Thailand earlier this year. Two of the three containers already arrived in Mt Hagen and one is still in Lae.

This would be the second round after the first batch of uniforms were distributed early last year only to primary schools and not elementary schools.

“Education is important, previously we only catered for grades three to eight, now we are taking care of the elementary school students as well.

“There are 11 thousand elementary, whilst 12 thousand students’ currently in grades 3 to 8 in Mul Baiyer, the member stated.

Trape added that this is one of the projects to improve the standard of education sector in the district and strongly urged the parents to act responsibly in raising their kids.
