Visit to the Yambo Elementary and Junior Schools

masterAdmin1

On a recent Rotary trip to the Yambo elementary and Junior schools by a number of members with a twofold purpose of inspecting the results of the combined work done with the community of the school and a meaningful discussion on the way forward in our support of the school. The work completed has been the supply of desks and the materials for the creation of floors for the various classrooms. The work on the floors had been done to a high standard and should enable them to be operated for a fair number of years and the school children were enjoying the 25 desks and 2 two teacher tables that had been provided. The rotary members then sat down with the school governors, the school principal and teachers to discuss what future assistance was required. The members were very keen to fund a joint initiative with the parents for the supply of text books and teaching materials for the staff to enable the standard of education to the children to be improved. The members are still very puzzled by the Educations Departments lack of support (no funds had been received) in terms of an operating budget. The hospitality of the community was a greatly appreciated and as always exceeded most of our expectations.

Boana Health Centre drop-off March 2014 (16/3/14)

masterAdmin1

Members of the Rotary Club of Lae Huon Gulf deliver much needed medical supplies and books to the Boana Health Centre.

In terms of time and distance, another big adventure came off on Sunday. Yes, it’s the sequel you’ve been waiting for… RETURN TO BOANA starring none other than the Rotary Club of Lae Huon Gulf.

Nestled high in the mountains of Morobe, Boana is a genuinely rural provincial health and administration centre.It took our two vehicles an hour and a half to travel the 25 km from where the road turns off the Highlands Highway. That’s averaging a whopping 16 km/h.

Thanks to the medical supplies (disposable latex gloves, surgical masks & birthing kits) and library books in the back, I made it all the way up there in 2 wheel drive. Steep, narrow, rocky, rutted roads zigzagged up a couple of mountain ranges and down the other side. Invariably, there was a white-water river at the bottom and more than a few friendly faces along the way.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Presentation of Balls to Schools and Desks to Busanim Elementary

masterAdmin1

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…
