The K2 million government funded infrastructure is one of the many developments undertaken by the school to cope with increasing enrollments.
The hall was formally opened by Minister for Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology, Francis Marus and witnessed by the school board & management, teachers and students.
School Principal, John August, said several other projects were financed by the college itself through fundraising as a communal effort to develop the institution.
“I believe in doing first before asking.”
“If you take the first step, someone else is going to come and help you,” said August.
Minister Marus said the new hall reinforced the O’Neil-Dion Government’s support for the realization of improved infrastructures in higher learning institutions.
“This is a testimony of the Government’s focus for continuous improvement in the higher education sector by providing access and improving quality higher education to the people of PNG through its infrastructure program,” he said.
The Port Moresby Business College has experienced and increase in enrollments by 18 per cent in the last five years.
This has put a strain on school infrastructure to accommodate this growing number of students and a number of projects have been undertaken by the college to address this concern.
The hall will be used for a variety of activities including classes.
