Lae Polytech student donate to Wewak Hospital

East Sepik Students Association student leader, Kennedy Fisause said, the total cost of the mattresses was K3,520, and bought from money raised from the East Sepik Provincial Day held by the students in Lae, in 2016.

He said after consultation with the hospital management, they were advised to purchase mattress for  use by patients.        

Fisause said despite the donation been small in size, it is hoped the mattress will provide comfort to the sick and injured when getting treatment at the hospital.

Kennedy Fisause a first year student speaking to Loop PNG said: “The main aim of the contribution is to help the students pay for their medical bills.

Fisause and fellow colleagues came up with the idea after an appeal account was opened for the students at a local bank.

He added that the appeal started on Friday and the monies raised will be deposited on Wednesday.

Lae Polytechnic students told to return to class

Loop PNG was reliably informed by a civil engineering student of the council decision which was reached yesterday.

“The governing council said the Student Representative Council (SRC) does not have a constitution in place,” the student said.     

The students on Wednesday started boycotting classes and asked the institute administration to get the blessing of the Governing Council to organise for students to vote and if majority agrees they will follow other government-run higher learning institutions in the country that are currently boycotting classes.
