Girls at Nawaeb Lutheran High School get K350,000 Aust help to get beds (The National, 26 October)
________

AUSTRALIA has stepped in to address the plight of female students living in a crowded dormitory at a school in Nawaeb by giving K350,000 to help build new accommodation.

Australian High Commission Minister Counsellor Andrew Eagan said the funding would be in addition to K150,000 coming from the Nawaeb district to provide new dorms for girls at the Nawaeb Lutheran High School.

The current dormitory was built for 40 students. It has 250.
It has 16 rooms for students in Grade 9 and 10.

Currently, 12 girls share two bunk beds in each cubicle that has no door. Others sleep along the corridor.

Nawaeb MP Kennedy Wenge said the girls had been sleeping like butterflies.

“Education is the light, an agent for change,” Wenge said.

STUCK IN MY MASERATI

Poor old Petrus left the Plaza in his Maserati
A lone finger in the air to waiting plebs and paparazzi.
Thought he show his skills to the cronies in Waigani
Alas got stuck in a massive pothole on the Magi

His Ideal Choice was to ring his buddies in Sri Lanka
But their curt reply was ‘Don’t be such a wanker!
You gotta get in touch with Harald in Modena
Or your mate the sticky green fingered gardener.’

He said I should have taken the Bentley
And on such bad roads driven gently.
Oh why didn’t I look north and ask for a Wuling Van
from my new friend Xue? - After all he’s The Man

paving the way for his boss to visit Waigani
lining it with shrubs and beautiful frangipani.

Meanwhile driver don’t make no fuss
Eh! Some of you lazy louts push my Maserati
Gotta get back in time for the welcome party
On the 5-start Princess Explorer cruise boat
Forgetting this mud with time to sit and gloat.
