The struggles and hardships of walking very long distances to access schools will now be a thing of the past for a community in the Yangoru Saussia district of East Sepik Province.
The Member for Yangoru Saussia Hon Richard Maru on Tuesday 30 June 2020, visited the construction of the new Simbomie Primary School that will service the four communities in the Simbomie-Sangrie Ward 24 of East Yangoru LLG.
MP Maru thanked the community for allocating a 19-hactare piece of land to build this new school. He also acknowledged the Provincial Education Board and National Education Department for already having this school registered, including approving of teacher positions to be funded in 2021.
The new Simbomie Primary School will start with a 4-in-1 classroom and four teacher houses, all funded by DSIP.
