Preparations for Year 9 at Lihir International School (LIS)
Preparations are well underway for our first year 9 in-take in 2020. Permissions have been given to proceed to year 9 in 2020 from the New Ireland Provincial Education Board (PEB), PNG National Education Board (NEB) and Education Queensland International (EQI). LIS will offer a blended curriculum based on the Australian curriculum and elements of the PNG curriculum, to ensure students are well prepared to sit the year 10 PNG National Exams. Approval has been given for construction of a new classroom in 2020, with text books, science equipment and other resources already on their way to LIS. There will also be a new uniform for high school students (years 7-9) in 2020. The recruitment process is underway for a new teacher to assist with year 9. This is an exciting new chapter for LIS and we look forward to fulfilling the vision of the Business Leadership team (BLT) in becoming a school of excellence for Lihir and the broader province.
This week, Work Ready Institute teacher, Mr Takaundo, is representing Lihir International School (LIS) at the Year 8 National Exams Marking in Kavieng. We look forward to hearing the achievements of our second year 8 class.
