Teachers , Students throughout PNG warned to return to class

Papua New Guinea Education Secretary has warned teachers and students to return to classes . Normal teaching and learning should be into full swing this week across all schools in the country.

Education Secretary Dr. Uke Kombra has expressed grave concern that instructions for schools to open and teachers and students to return to normal classes have not been adhered to by several schools throughout the country.

All schools, teachers and students were instructed to resume normal classes on July 25 and August 1 for other schools due to election-related violence and disturbances.

Secretary Kombra sternly warned that the rule of 30 days absenteeism will apply for students who do not turn up for classes without any good reason, while teachers who take advantage of the situation by not turning up at the school to teach or are still engaged in counting will be disciplined accordingly.

He said schools which are still closed for no good reason will not be paid their Government Tuition Fee payments or will be exempted from national examinations and assessments.

Provincial Education Advisors are also advised to assess the situation in their provinces and decide on an appropriate decision.
