GTFS funds paid to schools as of May 16

The Secretary for Education, Dr. Uke Kombra, PhD, OBE has confirmed that the Government Tuition Fee funds have already been paid into the schools’ bank accounts as of Thursday, May16.

The funds for the schools from decentralized provinces were paid last week Thursday.

BSP and Kina Banks have credited all the funds of schools that have bank accounts with them. Westpac Bank has credited all elementary schools, and batch 2 payments for National Schools of Excellence, secondary schools and vocational centres.

“I appeal to all school heads to keep the schools open because the funds have already been credited by the banks. Not all schools will be getting their payments because many of them have various issues to do with the closure of their bank accounts,” the Secretary said.

The Secretary has urged all the schools that have issues with their bank accounts to sort them out quickly so that they can be paid their funds.

Schools that may have missed out on this payment must see the Provincial GTFS Coordinator to sort their accounts or submit their latest School Census Forms to the office or email to the GTFS Unit on email address Betty_Napil@education.gov.pg.
