Nabire, Jubi – Two schools in Siriwo Sub-district, Nabire Regency, have been forced to halt classes for almost two months because the buildings were blocked by a contract teacher.

Commission C members of the Nabire Regional Council was informed of the blockade on SDN I and SMPN I Siriwo on Friday (23/9/2016) during a visit there.

The councilors said they would summon the Head of the Education Office to resolve this case.

A contract teacher in SDN I and SMPN I Siriwo, Bertha Laiduma Alah, explained the schools were blocked by a teacher who’s not recruited as the civil servant.

“We’ll wait until she open it, so that classes can run as usual. We do not defend her or her demand,” Bertha told Jubi in Nabire on Thursday (22/9/2016).

Related to the action, Bertha explained that the contract teacher with initial KB is a woman who’s a pioneer teacher for the both schools. She started teaching in these schools since twelve years ago.

“However, up to now, she hasn’t yet recruited as civil servant because of her age. We don’t know whether she is still expecting to become a civil servant. The government should pay attention to her demand,” she said.

School Committee Chairman Samuel Tukayo said both schools have six teachers including the Principal. “Related to this blockage, we forcedly find a spare time to give the additional lessons to the children,” he explained.

The blockage was already opened three days ago but the keys are missing. “We strongly expect the government to pay attention and solve this problem for the sake of our children,” he said. (*/rom)

Papua’s legislator: Free from rubella and measles shouldn’t be a media campaign only

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)
