Kila Kila Secondary School fire

Student allegedly burns down classroom

The double-storey 4 in 1 classroom is one of the 16 refurbished classrooms opened recently.

The Moresby South Member, Justin Tkatchenko, who was at the fire site this afternoon said the classroom was set alight by a Grade 12 student.

It is alleged that the suspected student was disciplined earlier today and retaliated by burning the classroom.

Tkatchenko expressed frustration, adding the K1 million worth classroom was lost in just 15 minutes.

Principal Herman Panai, and his Deputy Philemon Geidilo, confirmed the incident occurred around 3pm today.
