A series of week-long clusters programs for Standard Based Curriculum to run from the 15th -19th August 2016 was opened by Acting Deputy Secretary-Policy & Corporate Services Directorate of Department of Education, Mr Walipe Wingi in Mendi Town on the 13th August 2016.

The teachers and trainers in the Elementary Sector in Education are now relieved that a uniform and standard package has now finally arrived, replacing Outcome Based Curriculum (Education).

This package includes teacher’s guide, students’ guide and accompanying tools will be distributed to the teachers and students in 2017 academic year and the new curriculum will be taught in the classes which will be all uniform throughout the country on a daily, weekly and yearly basis and guided on the same pace.

According to the team leader of SHP team, Mr John Wek said, “Come December 31st 2016, the preparation and awareness part of Elementary Sector is over. Next phase will be lower Primary and eventually finishing at upper Secondary”.

He said, “At the time of speaking printings are going on in Port Moresby for teaching and learning materials “.

This is a big relief to teachers who have been teaching random topics and materials not clearly defined which had frustrated most of them, where it also solved their long time complaints.
