Four Principals disciplined

First Assistant Secretary for the NCD Education Service Division Peter Kants, said the principals disobeyed a government directive under the free education policy, which includes non-payment of project fees.

He told LoopPNG during the NCD Students Leaders SLIP Leadership Training Workshop today in Port Moresby.

He said every school has needs but when the government gives directives, schools have to abide by them.

“Even if there is a need at the school we have to find a better way to deal with such situations,” he said.

The briefing sessions was held at the Department of Education at Waigani from Sept 19-21, 2016.  

The theme of the briefing was “Enhancing Quality Skills Development for a Better Tomorrow”.

The prinicipals further called on the Department of Education (DoE) to begin to plan strategically to cater for large numbers of students, who leave annually at the end of Grades 8, 10 and 12, as currently experienced. 

Many students will leave at the end of Grades 8, 10 and 12 because of limited spaces at the various levels of education.
