Tabubil International School to re-open

Tabubil International School caters for children of employees of Ok Tedi Mining and their contractors.

The school was forced to close mid-2015 when the mine shutdown operations due to a major drought that hit the nation.

The school has reopened, this time, under the International Education Agency, as confirmed by IEA director of education Suzanne Savage.

Savage says IEA was approached last year as the preferred provider to reopen the school and continue it into the future.

“While it is a very sad day for the family and for OTML employees, it is a relief to have recovered our lost workmate after recovery efforts were hampered by weather and risk of further rock fall,” said OTML managing director and chief executive officer Peter Graham. 

Mr Graham also extended his sincere thanks to those involved in the recovery for their persistence and diligence.

Arrangements for family and friends to pay their respects will be made after the family arrives on site.
