Presentation of Balls to Schools and Desks to Busanim Elementary

2016

It was exciting, last Saturday (weekend) morning to see school children come in their best teams for the school soccer tournament.

TISOL has been facilitating the primary school boys and girls soccer some years back. It started off with 2 primary schools seen competing against each other.

2016 has seen an increase in the competition bring a total of about 7 to 10 schools coming into the tournament.

Rotary coming to the school to present the balls (rugby, soccer, AFL) was exciting and encouraging. With Lae Huon Rotary a goal in supporting good sportsmanship in the primary and secondary school in presentation of balls was overwhelming.

The deputy principle thanked the Lae Huon Rotary for promoting and supporting the primary school soccer tournament.

Also thanking Lae Huon Rotary Club was Mrs Taiwalu George, the head teacher of Busanim Elementary School, 12 mile, along the Okuk Highway.

They had just completed a double classroom and trying to source funds to purchase desks. Lae Huon Rotary came in time to settle their need.

“Pasim tok tenkiu long olgeta boss man blong Rotary Club”. Do convey word of thanks to Rotarians…

Lae Rotary Club Supports West Taraka Elementary School

2016

A non-government organisation has helped built a classroom for an elementary school in one of Lae’s oldest suburbs.

Lae’s Rotary club helped raised K20,000 to build the infrastructure at West Taraka.

Members of the club and its president opened the classroom yesterday.

“The Lae Rotary club funded the materials and the parents built the classroom, so that’s what’s its really all about,” said Lae Rotary Club President John Byrne.

Its not everyday that this part of Lae City receives attention from organisations, either government or private.

But, yesterday the community had something to be pleased about.

The long tradition of the rotary club continues. They have helped West Taraka children.

Especially for this, sometimes-troubled suburb, known for its high crime rate.

It is a rare occasion for families.

West Taraka’s Ting elementary will have a new classroom.

The first one of three funded by Laes Rotary club and built by the parents. Its teachers have also been registered as practicing early childhood teachers.

A representative of the Morobe Provincial government was also in attendance to present funding on behalf of the Governor Kelly Naru.

“On behalf of the Governor, I’d like to announce that the Morobe Provincial government is funding K10,000 to the elementary school,” said Media and Public Affairs Advisor, Patrick Levo.

There have been significant cuts in government spending this year.

Non-governmental organisations have been relatively quiet, but local communities will need more of their help during this time.

The Lae rotary club is slowly making it presence felt in the most difficult Lae community.
