Joseph Pintol – Principal, St. Anthony Utai High School

Pintol couldn’t contain his joy when referring to the Mini Hydro power that was donated to his school by the Project Development Benefits in late 2021.

“We got machines to run in there and we’ve got typing to do and stuff like that. We use to use solar energy and a small generator that can only run for a certain amount of time.

“Having a regular power supply like this is something I cannot imagine, being in a remote place like this,” he said.

New complex for Madang technical

The elaborate and well-organised event saw the Minister of Finance and Rural Development unveil the signage of the new complex as well as make a further K1 million commitment to the institution.  

The commissioning of the new Tiduk Haus Administration complex marks the launch of a new era for the college that currently enrolls over 600 students.

Proud principal Graham Bidang said the technical college will no longer be a small institution tucked away in the corner of a lagoon in Madang, but will rise up to be a centre of excellence in education and skills training.
