“I would like to thank the government of Australia and New Zealand who, through the Solomon Islands Education Sector Support Program, provided technical support and funding over the years of all this work. This ongoing support allowed us to undertake an exemplary process, acknowledged as such on the floor of our parliament.

“ Not many of us will ever be in a position to say we were part of something as significant as a brand-new piece of such significant legislation. This is a once a life time moment for us. Please take pride of this moment in our country’s education history,” Lanelle said.

Permanent Secretary for Ministry of Education Dr Franco Rodie also uttered words of acknowledgement to Rod Hilton and Jonathan Schwass.
