Waigani Christian School has had its prayers answered with PNG Sustainable Development Program (PNGSDP) committing K350, 000 for a new double classroom.
Principal, Agnes Seiyari, announced the good news at an end-of-term gathering with parents last Friday (June 28).

Seiyari said she and director, Benjamin Mul, had had a meeting with PNGSDP at which documents were signed to build the double classroom.
“The double classroom will be built by them (PNGSDP),” she said.
“They are giving us K350, 000 for a double classroom.
“The finances will be managed by them, the school will only get quotations.
“It’s a great blessing to the school.”
In May, Mul showed parents 11 hectares of land on Waigani Heights on which the school will be expanded.
Mul, the former North Wahgi MP, founded the school in 1993 and it has over the years become well known for its high quality Christian education.
He held a feast for parents at the site of the expansion, where he showed them where 10 new classrooms would be built, and appealed for their support.
One classroom has already been built at a cost of K175, 000.
The school currently takes in students from prep to Grade 8, with plans for it to take up to Grade 12.
It currently has more than 800 students from elementary to Grade 8.
