Timika, 15/4 (Jubi) – Pupils at5 SD Inpres Fakafuku elementary school have not attended classes for nine months because the principal and teachers have not shown up for work.
“The activities at SD Inpres Fakafuku have been paused for nine months. I think there are also some schools in Mimika that are not active,” the head of the Education Bureau for the Community Development Organization of Amungme and Komoro (LPMAK), Markus Wora, said in Timika on Tuesday (15/4).
“It has happened because the principal and the teachers have not come to the school. The students have two options, staying at home or playing outside of their classrooms,” he said.
Meanwhile, the head of the Elementary Education and Cultural Department, Fitria Fivie Palenewen said her office has urged the principal of SD Inpres Fakafuku to resume classes.
“Because of our limitation, we cannot monitor all schools. Besides SD Inpres Fakafuku, there are some schools that are not active. We have summoned those school principals to sign an integrity pact to show their commitment to return to their schools and work as usual,” she said.
She further said at the moment school activities were running although not 100 percent. (Jubi/Eveerth/rom)
