Wamena, 6/5 (Jubi) – Lanny Jaya regency’s efforts to be an education champion in the Papua Central Highlands appeared to have made a breakthrough.
After developing two leading elementary schools at Tiom and Indawa sub-districts, the government of Kanny Jaya is planning to open another leading school in Poga Sub-district within this year.
According to the Regional Secretary of Lanny Jaya Regency, Christian Sohilait, the third leading school in Lanny Jaya Regency will be soon launched.
“We will open the leading school in Poga. Since this school is just running for a year, I hope all stakeholders will ensure its quality,” he said to tabloidjubi.com on Tuesday (6/5).
In order to support the State Elementary School (SDN) Poga to become a leading school, the local government will recruit teachers from the Surya Institute to assist existing the local teaching staff and start to intensify science learning activities.
Besides the launch of the leading school at Poga, the Education and Learning Department of Lanny Jaya Regency in collaboration with the Local Government of Lanny Jaya Regency will launch the Scientific Building at SMP YPPGI. The building would be the first of its kind in the Central Highlands.
“Everything related to the science can be found there. This is the local government’s effort to encourage the regency to become an education champion,” Sohilait said.
The Head of the Education and Learning Department of Lanny Jaya, Aletinus Yigibalom, said the launch of the Poga leading school is part of his programs. The school will accept new pupils in June.
He added that teachers from the Surya Institute are currently already in Tiom, Lanny Jaya.
“There are twenty outsourced teachers who already registered in the Poga Leading School while it only needs twelve teachers. Furthermore, the leading school is allocated to accommodate 30 pupils. All facilities are ready,” Yigibalom said. (Jubi/Islami/rom)
