YPPGI Sentani students conduct USBN – Jubi / Yance Wenda

Sentani, Jubi – SMP (Junior High School) YPPGI Sentani Principal, David Balik said his school is not able to administer the Computer-based National Exam (UNBK) due to limited facilities. As a consequence, it conducts the Paper-based National Exam (UNKP).

“SMP Haleluya Sentani will join our school for the exam. There are 70 students from SMP YPPGI and 19 students from SMP Haleluya. So, the total is 89 students, 57 boys and 32 girls. Most of them are indigenous Papuans. Only five are non-Papuans,” said Balik at his school on Tuesday (4/17/2018).

All junior high school students in Jayapura District administer the School-based National Exam (USBN) from Monday, April 16 to Thursday, April 19. Then, they continue to conduct the Computer-based National Exam (UNBK) on April 23.

There are seven subjects tested in the USBN, and the invigilators are teachers from other schools. “The invigilators for our school are teachers from SMPN 2 Sentani. And in turn, our teachers invigilate the students of SMPN 1 Sentani. This similar way will continue for the following exam,” said Balik.

At the same place, SMP Haleluya Principal, Jonah Lasol said this is the first exam for his school. “This would be our first graduate. They are 19 indigenous students. We do not build a high-standard school, but it’s more accommodating the students’ need,” he said.

He expects the government will give more consideration in promoting education in the land of Papua because it helps people to achieve a better life. “I always tell my students that you are the future leaders of this country, and every inch of your contribution is gold. Although it’s only a few of number, they will stand for this country,” said Lasol. (*)

The coordinator for the Solidarity for indigenous Papuan traders (Solpap) Franky Warer said it just happened spontaneously because of their disappointment. “The electricity was cut off at around 11.00 Papua time when I was still at home, then someone called me. I then went to the market and called the mayor,” Warer told Jubi by phone on Friday evening (08/10/18).

After that, he said, the Municipal Government agreed to contact the PLN and the electricity in the market turned normal at around 18:00 Papua time.

Meanwhile, the Papuan legislator John NR Gobai commented that relevant parties should pay attention to this matter for not outsizing the traders. “This market is managed under the Trade and Industry Office of Jayapura Municipal Government. So the agency needs to find a solution immediately,” he said. (*)
