New student hall, classrooms for Kilakila Secondary

Kilakila Secondary School in Port Moresby today launched a new student assembly hall and 20 refurbished classrooms that were worth K2 million.

The school, which caters for over 1000 students, now has a proper assembly hall for staging examinations, school concerts, meetings and studies.

Some of the 20 classrooms are brand new while others have been refurbished and modernised.

School principal Herman Panai thanked the Moresby South electorate and the National Capital District Commission for funding the infrastructure of the school. 

Panai said the school is currently facing a lot of challenges, including infrastructure development and shortage of teachers’ houses.

He said the full refurbishment and upgrade of the school encourages the teachers and students to work hard and make use of the facilities.

Panai also urged the students to take care of the new facilities.   

Moresby South electorate Member of Parliament, Justin Tkatchenko, said they are determined to support the children and the next generation of students and the future of their education.

“You must be educated and looked after and we must also ensure that you have the best facility to be educated in a clean, healthy and safe environment,” said the MP.

The electorate and the NCDC also committed another K2 million of development for the school. It includes proper fencing, sporting facilities and another 12 classrooms to cater for the growing population of the school.

The facilities were launched by NCD Governor Powes Parkop and Justin Tkatchenko.
