UPNG students boycott

UPNG plans to resume academic year

A UPNG staff, who did not want to be named, confirmed the information with Loop PNG today.

“I know that the school will start but when exactly I’m not sure. It hasn’t been confirmed yet,” the staff said.

Another academic revealed the existence of a proposed calendar.

“But it's still being deliberated upon so not confirmed yet.”

This will come as a relief for not only the 5000-plus UPNG students but their parents, guardians and UPNG staff as well.
