Busu Secondary School

Busu secondary’s growth

The school’s Deputy Principal – Administration, Samba Lames, attributed this to a strict principal and an initiative that started in 2008.

Busu became a secondary school in 2006 with its first Grade 11 intakes. The school, however, was struggling academically and financially until 2016, when their new principal, George Noble, arrived.

Speaking to media after the school’s 14th Grade 12 graduation, Deputy Principal – Administration, Lames, attributed Busu’s infrastructural and academic development to Noble.

Proud grandfather steals limelight

However, you rarely see students being followed up to the stage by their proud parents or grandparents, as was the case with Busu Secondary School graduate, Vokira Mombi.

Two-hundred-and-sixty-four Grade 12 students graduated on Thursday, November 19, at Busu Secondary School in Lae, Morobe Province.

Among them was social science dux from the Grade 12 line 4 class, Vokira Mombi, who came first in legal studies and economics, and placed second in history.
