MRDC boosts school upgrade with K10,000
IALIBU Secondary School in Southern Highlands province received K10,000 from the Mineral Resource Development Company (MRDC) last Thursday.
Managing director Augustine Mano visited the school and gave teachers, students and parents the money.
He said the K10,000 was to help meet some of the school’s operational costs.
Mr Mano said although Southern Highlands is rich in natural resources and contributed about 26% of the country’s revenue, it lacked infrastructure developments.
He also challenged the students to work hard in school.
Principal Elias Landea said the school was old and rundown.
However, he was hopeful that a K600,000 commitment by Governor Anderson Agiru this year would materialise soon so that they could renovate school infrastructure.
Mr Landea said the K10,000 from MRDC would also go towards the school’s face-lift exercise.
Ialibu Secondary recently received K10,000 worth of library books from PNG Sustainable Development Program while local MP and Public Service Minister Peter O’Neill chipped in K200,000 for the repair and maintenance of all school assets.
