Continuous rainfall, ENB classes suspended

The downpour, which started on Sunday, is causing widespread flooding and as a result, the East New Britain Provincial Education Board suspended classes effective today, Wednesday 20th February, until Friday, 22 February.

Chairman of the Provincial Education Board, Wilson Matava, issued the notice to all schools in ENB – from elementary to secondary, technical and vocational schools.

He said heavy rain is posing a threat to the safety of students. Classes will resume on Monday 25 February.
