Post Primary Education

Students including those with special needs in grades 9 to 12 achieve their individual potential to lead productive lives as members of the local, provincial, national and international community and partake of further quality education and training, having undertaken a broad range of subject and work related activities that can be used in everyday life.

One of the Morobe Provincial Government priorities is to have an increase in access to secondary education during the planned period 2007 to 2016. Despite this priority, this plan acknowledges the importance of increasing work being needed to ensure that the present trend of deteriorating assets is halted and reversed. This will be achieved through a substantial commitment from the provincial government for the maintenance, and in some cases rehabilitation of existing school infrastructure.

 

Education

Progress has been made in providing extra access at Grade 9 and Grade 11. Access for girls has improved although there is still more room for improvement. This increase has brought about high expectations, particularly amongst parents who still see a Grade 12 education as being a path to University.

More opportunities will be given to students to be enrolled in existing and to be established Department of Open and Distance Learning (DODL) or UPNG study centres at Secondary Schools like the current arrangements at Bugandi, Markham Valley and Dregerhafen 82 Secondary school. This would enable school leavers from respective school to matriculate or continue their education. The gender issue in secondary school enrolments is closely observed by selectors and encouraged in school enrolments. In the province female students will be further encouraged to continue their education.
