Six female Pacific Adventist University (PAU) Education students were recently awarded free laptops by Boosting Education Standards Together (BEST) PNG. The event took place on May 3 and was held at the School of Humanities, Education and Theology staff room.
The laptops were presented to the students by BEST PNG under the Female Teacher Education Scholarship Scheme. Upon receiving the laptops, the students were congratulated for their achievements and encouraged to continue striving for excellence and Papua New Guinea.
The six recipients—Wagile Sonoling, Velianne Lenassa, Daniella Stagg, Joyce Oivo, Eveth Steven and Georgina Henry—were selected based on academic merit, demonstrated by scholarship achievements throughout their educational journey.
The students were recognised for being a part of the few female science teachers in the making and the laptops were given to support them as students and future science teachers.
Attending the event were representatives from BEST PNG, Save the Children and the PNG Department of Education.
