Classes resume at UPNG

The University of Papua New Guinea, Waigani campus, resumed classes today.

Pressure is mounting as students now have only four weeks to revise and prepare for examinations.

Students revealed to Loop PNG that there are still mixed emotions as a few found it odd that the reconciliation ceremony was held without the student leaders’ participation.

Some supposed it would have been far more significant if the leaders had been a part of the event.

“They can’t be expelled; they have to be allowed back in. If not, this makes a mockery of the reconciliation,” said a political science lecturer.

Only a handful of students turned up for their lectures today as the rest are still completing re-enrollment and other necessary requirements before properly settling in.

Due to the absence of a few journalism and public relations lecturers, students from that strand will be starting on Wednesday.
