EDUCATION Authority of the Honiara City Council will prioritise the White River Community High School and Honiara High School with support in education this year, Ward Councillor Eric Tema said.
The assurance was made in Mr Tema’s speech during official launching of the White River Community High School’s new computer lab yesterday.
“If there is a way to support schools, the priority is, the HCC will look to White River Community High School and Honiara High School.
“I regard white river school is not just like any other school, White River and Honiara High become a senior secondary school of the HCC.”
Tema said over the years, three schools under HCC have made positive records in academic end year performance, and White River School is one of them – between 2015 and 2017.
He commended the School administration and team behind the computer lab initiative for such a milestone improvement for form six and seven students.
He said education is a powerful tool to anything in life and it is better students make use of the opportunities given especially infrastructure and facilities established to boost their academic aspirations.
“I know some student come from high class family and some are not but this a challenge for you students to face,” Tema said.
The education authority of the HCC has 12 secondary schools, 11 primary and 22 early childhood education schools.
