Boera Primary School

More than just writing and reading

To achieve the theme “Quality Literacy for Economic Development”, Papua New Guineans, especially children, should adopt right attitudes to complement their literacy skills.

This was the take home message at Boera Primary School in commemoration of the National Literacy Week.

Pacific Sports Marketing Management Limited (PSMML) & ExxonMobil PNG are coordinating activities at schools in the Hiri West District.

The Goodwill Values Program conducted in LNG impacted communities benefits this week’s literacy week celebrations.

Fun learning for Boera students

“I really enjoyed it. We learnt a lot about rugby league and now we’re really into it. We also learnt skills on how to be nice and how to treat people,” said student Anella Ninikin.

“It was my first time to meet the Kumuls and I was so happy to learn new skills from them,” said Poi Morea.

Asked who their favourite player was, both Grade Seven students answered: James Segeyaro.

“Today’s clinic taught me how to play better rugby league in my favourite position, playing hooker here in the village,” said Billy Kini.

Village school on track for national exams

The village is facing a shortage of water supply following the dry weather which has emptied water tanks and wells are drying up.

Despite that, the students are working hard to pass their exams.

School head master John Wasigui said teachers were working with the 29 grade eight students doing   remedial exercises for an one hour after school.

“After three mock exams, we have highlighted some weakness areas in various topics which the teachers are emphasising during remedial classes.
