SAMBORA community is concerned with the hold up in its school’s grant, which is said to be due to non-retirement of its 2015 grant.
The current headmistress, Mrs Louisa Pagepitu, adds to the community’s call on the national education ministry to consider the situation they are in.
They allege that the problem began with the former headmistress [name withheld] who allegedly misused the grant, and did not retire it.
Mrs Pagepitu says the school has not received its grants 2016 and 2017, adding this has impeded much on the school’s progress and development.
She explained that school administration plus teaching and learning resources are lacking at the moment.
This situation has forced her to advice parents and guardians to buy stationaries for their children, because the school cannot provide.
Meanwhile, community members of Sambora Village are calling on the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MEHRD) to investigate and address the reports of school grant misuse by the former headmistress.
