Students of the Erap Primary School in the Huon Gulf district of the Morobe province have been urged to pursue all sources of information to learn from, instead of just focusing on one source.
Erap Primary School’s senior subject master teacher, Mr. Brandon Thomas delivered this statement on Friday 11th August during the school’s observation of National Book week.
“Though the school doesn’t have a library doesn’t mean you don’t have access to information,” he said.
“Information coming from different background of people is similar to having access to books and the internet.”
“These information, are from books, the internet and more from personal experiences they share with you and you must make it your business to learn as much as possible through listening and asking questions.”
“Don’t just listen, you have to ask questions about what you heard. This broadens your knowledge to advance in life,” Mr. Thomas said.
Mr. Freddy Sifuma a former teacher by profession, during his speech urged students to choose carefully which mediums of learning would contribute positively to their lives.
He said making decisions to grasp knowledge is very vital.
“You must decide on where and who to get information that would help advance you to achieve your dreams.”
