The New Ireland Provincial Executive Council has moved to partner with the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (OLSH) International school in Kavieng. The school will now be called “Governors School of Excellence.”
This comes after the school board notified the Provincial Government that the school was facing closure ofits high school classes particularly its grade 9 and 11 classes due to the unavailability of funds.
During its final PEC meeting for 2018, the NIP Government approved that the school must remain operational due to its quality of Education and it’s ranking as one of the top International schools in the country.
“We cannot afford to lose a quality school like OLSH, it’s the only International school in the province,through OLSH our kids have been getting a world class education without having to travel overseas. Or vice versa when expatriates come to our shores they can be guaranteed that their children have a school to go to which is on par with what they are leaving behind,” expressed Sir J.
The PEC approved New Ireland Provincial Administration, Division of Education and OLSH to establish the Governor’s School of Excellence through a partnership delivery model.
It approved the Upgrade and rebranding of OLSH to the “Governor’s School of Excellence and approved the Government subsidy office in consultation with New Ireland Provincial Administration to provide up to fifty (50) boarding and tuition scholarships for the top performing students in New Ireland to undertake studies at the Governors School of Excellence.
