Why is physical education contracted out to a company in Papua New Guinea?
Posted February 07, 2018 05:18:13 It’s been a year since the Australian government paid for physical education to Papua New Guinean children, but many children still have to travel to school to take part in the curriculum.
The Papua New Gans language and education minister has confirmed a contract with Australian companies to provide the curriculum for a program to provide vocational training to children in the Papua New Islands.
Key points: The curriculum for physical and language education in Papua has been contracted out from the government of Papua New New Guinea (PNG) to a number of foreign companies.
The curriculum is designed to provide skills for children to learn in the remote region, which has been devastated by the monsoon drought.
“This contract has been extended for the next three years, so we’ll be able to continue to provide this training in Papua to our children in PNG,” Ms McManus said.
“Our children have been through this kind of trauma, trauma that has been incredibly difficult, and this is a fantastic opportunity to help them learn and to develop in a safe environment.”
Ms McManuans father was in the Royal Australian Navy during World War II and has been a retired police officer for more than 30 years.
She said she had asked her son if he wanted to be part of the program, and he agreed.
“He was really keen to be involved,” she said.’
We need to support and be strong’The Papua New Government’s Minister of Physical Education and Sports (MPESA) said in a statement that the company was contracted out in December 2016.”MPESA has been working with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver the physical education curriculum to our community for the benefit of children from PNG,” it said.
“The curriculum for PE is now being delivered to local schools in PNG and will be provided for the primary school age cohort of children.”
In addition, MPESA has also been working closely with the Australian Government on supporting the physical and non-physical education programs of PNG and Australia to enable them to meet the challenges facing our children and communities.”‘
We can’t afford to lose this opportunity’In the first month of the contract’s implementation, Ms Mc Manus said the program had been delivered to schools in six districts.”
They are very excited about it and they want to continue working with MPESA to provide these training opportunities to our kids,” she added.”
We need these opportunities to be in place, so that children in our community can learn in a way that’s safe and sustainable.
