GP education achieves milestone – 100 percent pass rate

GUADALCANAL Education has achieved another education milestone for academic year 2017 into 2018.

Guadalcanal Provincial Minister Hon Lazarus Rina proudly announced that Guadalcanal Province has achieved 100 percent pass rate and placement for all grade six students to commence form one high school in 2018.

For such a result, Hon Rina said it is the first of its kind for Guadalcanal province.

As Minister responsible for education in Guadalcanal, Hon Rina wishes to thank his staffs at the education division, all grade six teachers around Guadalcanal province, school boards, hard working parents and most especially the students for their commitment towards their studies.

“Such results is the manifestation of everybody’s hard work, perseverance and commitment to building our province’s human resources,” Rina expressed.

He furthers that beside the outstanding grade six result, 2017 pass rate and 2018 placement results for forms 3, forms 5 and forms 6 of 2017 are also very satisfactory.

Challenge now is for GP-education authority and other private authorities operating schools within GP jurisdiction and parents to sustain and maintain such momentum for next years’ results.

GP Education division’s focus now will be to create more space by building new classrooms and upgrading existing schools to cater for more form 4 and form 6 student placements.

Meanwhile in the tertiary division, GP will continue to provide scholarships for continuing students and new 2018 intakes for Solomon Islands National University.

GP will likely sponsor up to 315 new students for SINU this year.
