SUMATIN LAE SCHOOLS COMPETITION KICKS OFF FOR THIRD YEAR
For the third year running, Barata PNG will host the SUMATIN School Competitions for Lae Schools, from the 11th - 15th of June at the Trinder Hall, Lae Secondary School.
SUMATIN, our community program, is a platform for students to speak on different issues affecting them through debating, public speaking, spelling and quizzes. The week - long program also includes a youth summit where amazing young people come to share their experiences to inspire and motivate the youth.
The 2019 theme is ‘The Responsible Youth’, where we look at different issues we face and ways where as young people we can be able to contribute back to our communities.
We are anticipating 15 schools from across the city to participate. SUMATIN 2019 will also feature 4 speakers for the summit and a special screening of ‘Power Meri’, the documentary film on PNG’s first National Women’s Rugby League Team, The PNG Orchids.
Support for the program are welcomed and organisations can get in touch with us via email for more information.
