TUKUSENDA RECEIVES DOUBLE CLASSROOM, LIBRARY
Tukusenda Primary School in Sirunki of Enga Province has received a double classroom and library from the Enga Provincial Government. https://pngsun.com/2021/05/21/gunmen-inflicted-rampage-on-sopas/
A contractor constructed both buildings at a cost of K100, 000. The surrounding communities spare the school infrastructure in the course of their tribal fight engagements. That is because it serves all their children.
Enga Governor Sir Peter Ipatas and Wabag MP Dr Lino Tom were in the area to open the buildings.
This education facility is one of the feeder schools to the nearby Surinki Lutheran High School.
Tukusenda area is known for its fierce tribal fights but the village elders and leaders from the area have brokered for peace to allow for government services to reach their area.
Local MP Tom pledged additional K200,000 for a standard double classroom to cater for increase in student enrollment.
Additionally, other project Wabag DDA funded at Upper Lai-Surinki area is the Apanda-Keas ring road construction. https://www.pngattitude.com/2020/05/a-wind-of-change-in-maramuni.html
Further, he justified that this area was also known for its abundant fresh supply of cabbage, carrots, strawberries, pea beans and potatoes.
The ring road construction will join Keas on the other end then come down into Tukusenda and eventually into Surinki Lutheran High school area and then onto the main Highlands Highway at Surinki Government station.
Furthermore, Tom urged locals to take ownership of the government services.
