Church of Melanesia eyes more training centres by 2020



Diocesan secretary of the Anglican Diocese of Malaita, Anthony Maelasi.

THE vision for year 2020 of the Anglican diocese of Malaita (DOM) is to be self-reliant concerning its development plans and visions.

Education is one of the priorities that the Anglican Diocese of Malaita is focusing on by introducing more schools in the regions within Malaita province.

This was said in a statement by the Diocesan secretary of the Anglican Diocese of Malaita Mr Anthony Maelasi during the ordination programme at Fiu last Sunday.

Maelasi said a new secondary school will be established soon at Ilikata land in central region in Malaita province.

He said plans have been already in place towards the establishment of this new secondary school and will be own by the diocese of Malaita.

“It becomes a national project of the Solomon Islands government under the ministry of education,” Maelasi said.

He also said three rural training centres (RTC) will be introduced in the northern region, eastern and southern region according to the DOM plans and visions for year 2020.

The idea is to introduce more skills training in those RTCs for school dropouts.

Maelasi also announces that DOM is currently working in partnership with the community of the sisters of the church (CSC) to set up its centre in Auki especially to address the social issues that are affecting the church today.

“We will continue to establish this initiative to create a better and a happy environment to all Christians.

“As we work along this journey with our visions and plans our commitment to our God will be most important both in our spiritual and physical developments.”
