Tokarara Primary School’s newly appointed Head Teacher Mr. John Paison said during his short experience since October last year 2023, he has faced challenges but remains confident for the 2024 Academic Year.
Tokarara Primary School is one of the oldest government public schools in Tokarara Rakatani Road providing early childhood and junior studies to the communities inside and outside of Tokarara.
Mr. Paison stressed the recently run down infrastructure was attended to since his appointment.
The recent developments involved efficient refurbishment of classroom walls, ceilings, stairs, and painting, to regain the trust and interest of over 1400 students to feel more comfortable during classes.
Furthermore, mentioned new logistics equipment for teaching staff to have adequate resources to aid in their day-to-day teaching schedules.
However, Mr. Paison expressed that due to the high number of students we prioritize discipline and so all senior grade 8 classes have been moved to better monitor.
Mr. Paison stressed the high number of student enrolments have been overwhelming,
“However, priority is given to continuing students before we accommodate new intakes.”
“We make sure to accommodate our continuing students before accepting transferring students.”
“We accept transferring students when they fulfill all the necessary requirements.”
Mr. Paison elaborated on the challenges overcome last year with sufficient resources with short period of time to the end of year brings confidence.
“I believe with the support of my 28-teaching staff available, will be efficient to take on the year smoothly.”
