SCHOOL Board of the White River Community High School plans to upgrade the school’s infrastructure and facilities next year.
Coordinator of the special task force, Mr Richard Tepuke Pautangata said they plan to improve the school infrastructure and its facilities with an aim to provide conducive learning for students accessing the services.
He said the area they will look at is building staff houses; and science class should begin next year since the science lab is already in place and boreholes installed for water supply.
Pautangata also said the future plan is to have form six and form seven science and this will depend on tuition fee collection and school grants.
With the new computer lab, Pautangata said there is a plan for upgrading to 40 more computers and extension of spaces for students and tutors.
With this ambitious plan, the taskforce encourages parents, guardians and the Solomon Islands Government for support as this is important for the operation of the school administration and student’s future.
White River School Board, Caretaker Vice Chair, Mrs Hilda Rade Tango said education reform is essential to provide learners with what are commonly called 21st century skills.
