McMahon School to see Form 6 in 2018
FORM six Science promised for McMahon Community High School at Tulagi this year will have to wait until 2018.
According to the Central Islands Provincial Premier Hon Patrick Vasuni, the submission letter to the Ministry of Education was a bit late this year for approval.
“Otherwise, all facilities for a new form six classroom are already available.
“My government is working hard now to ensure that the school should start off with a Form six science class by 2018.
“The province has already provided facilities including making the teachers postings for the Form six class this year but only recently we had learned that Form six expected to be introduced could not be made possible because of the late submission to the ministry.
“Otherwise, a new classroom, science lab and staff houses are already prepared for the introduction of form six,” he added.
Apart from that, the current CIP provincial government’s aim according to Hon Vasuni is to also establish more Form sixes in schools of CIP to support the only school that currently has a form six in the province, and that is at Siota PSS.
“From our observation, CIP always has a large number of form five school dropouts so establishing more Form six’s will help students of the province to have access in attending form six to further their education,” said Hon Vasuni.
