Marianville Secondary School

Marianville students encouraged

60 students from Marianville were present at the Healthy Teens School Program (HTSP) and the Cancer Education & Awareness Workshop (CEAW) at the Taurama Aquatic Centre on Friday, 18th August.

Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation (PNGCF) Health Educator, Jacob Oburi, conducted the Healthy Teens School Program in the first session, educating them on how to reduce the risk of developing cancer.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 30 percent of cancer cases are preventable,” Oburi said.

Marianville girls kick off sports carnival with Games Relay

Over 500 students circled around the sports oval in their house colours of blue, yellow, blue and green.

Each girl had the chance to touch the baton and cheered with delight as they did so.

Teacher Elsie Obara said the Relay is a historical event and it’s rewarding that the Relay coincides with their sports carnival.

She said they are proud to be part of the Relay and are looking forward to the Games in nine days time.

Before the baton visited Marianville, the students of Laloki ran the baton a half mile from their school to Nature Park.
