Elementary Primary Secondary Parents & Guardians
Educators & Staff

 The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted learning for 1.5 billion children representing over 89% of the world’s student population including all 2.41 million students in PNG. The gains in expanding access to education and improving the quality of education are being severely compromised.

 Schools and communities have been advised to adjust to a “New Normal/Niupela Pasin” meaning a new way of living and going about our lives, work and interactions with other people.

The Department of Education has come up with awareness materials to communicate these new ‘normal messages’ to teachers, parents and children in three languages; English Motu and Tok Pisin. The messages are grouped for Lower Primary, Primary and Secondary.
