Dept launches student website

The “My PNG Home study” website is one of the new interventions the department is working on.

Secretary for Education, Dr. Uke Kombra, said during the five weeks of State of Emergency, the department used radio and TV to engage students.

But this new approach means students can access it using their mobile devices or computers wherever they are.
