Hauleneme Primary gets new double classrooms

The staff and students from Hauleneme Primary School in the Ambunti-Dreikikier District, East Sepik province were thrilled to launch the new double classroom funded by Digicel PNG Foundation on Wednesday.

School board chairman Bernard Engime expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Digicel PNG Foundation for selecting their school as one of the recipients of the Infrastructure Development Program.

He emphasized the transformative impact of the project on their community:

“We are truly grateful for the recognition and support by Digicel PNG Foundation. When we heard that our school was selected to receive a classroom, it motivated us as a community to work together and help where we can so that this project can be a success,” he said.

“This is the first time to receive this type of support in our district. That’s why we are excited to celebrate this achievement today.

And we promise that as a school and community, we will take care of this building so that our children can use it for many years to come.”

The school now boasts a state-of-the-art double classroom building, fully equipped with 20 standard student desks, whiteboards, pin boards, and teachers’ tables and chairs in each classroom.

The project goes beyond just the classrooms also including newly fitted solar rooftop panels to provide electricity, a 9,000L Tuffa tank with a lockable tap for water storage, and a WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) facility for the students.

The sheer joy and appreciation were evident among the teachers, students, and the school administration at Hauleneme Primary School during the classroom’s unveiling.

With a total investment of K350, 000 in this endeavor, the foundation’s commitment to East Sepik Province reaches an impressive K3.5 million.

This includes investments in seven primary schools, seven elementary schools, two libraries, four ambulances, and five community grants.

The community has been closely involved in the classroom project since its commencement in February this year, working alongside Nabs Building Contractors who was engaged by Digicel Foundation in the construction of the classroom infrastructure.
