Sentani, Jubi – The principal of vocational school, SMK Negeri 2 Nimboran, Yunus Barande, urged Jayapura government to help solve the transportation problems for teachers and students as well as provide electricity to the school.
“The school is unable to start at 8.30am because of distance from the main road to the school about 2.5 km away. As a result, students get tired and their uniforms are not neat again,” Yunus Barande told reporters in Nimboran, last week.
Other threats include sexual harassment against teachers and students in school by unknown people who take advantage of the situation.
“I’ve proposed procurement of school buses to the Department of Education to serve the teachers and students but until now there has not been an answer,” he said.
Yunus added, Sometimes the power go out when the learning process is running. As vocational school, it urgently need enough electricity facilities.
In response, Jayapura regent deputy Roberth Djonsoe said he will report this problems to Jayapura legislative Council to be considered.
“The most important thing is the entrance to the school is to note. Related to this we will push along with the legislature to determine further policy, including the relevant authorities,” said Djoensoe. (Engelbert Wally/Tina)
