Timika , 22/5 ( Jubi ) -Of five students of Elementary School SD YPPK Tipuka who  registered for exams, only three showed up.

The number indicates that there is lack of awareness of the importance of education in Kampung Tipuka.
“School and parents have done their best to motivate the kids but they have little interest in attending school,” Krisantus Saklil, Headmaster of Elementary School SD YPPK Tipuka said in Timika on Wednesday (21/5).

“We hope the number of students will increase next year. Otherwise, we will go back to approach and convince the parents again. One thing that you should know that the kids got helped to pass the school exam in two years in a row,” Saklil said.

The previous year, the participants were seven and all of them passed though they were qualified junior school level. The absence of children is not reasonable, because there is shuttle bus who take them every day even though the distance from home to school is quite far.
“It’s depend on the kids and  their future is in their hands. We could not blame the school because we have If it happens like this,” he said.
