Launching Ceremony for the National Mathematics Textbooks

[Goal 4] Quality Education


The National Department of Education (NDoE), led by Minister for Education, Hon. Lukas Dekena, MP, and Secretary for Education, Dr. Uke Kombra, PhD, successfully inaugurated the official launching ceremony for the National Mathematics Textbooks for Grade 1 and 2 on April 26, 2024 at Gateway Hotel.

These textbooks were developed with the technical support of the Japanese company 'GAKKO TOSHO' and with the financial support of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) under BEST PNG Program led by Save the Children. The JICA PNG Office, as the Coordinating Agency, supported the NDoE and GPE in facilitating mutual communication and prompt coordination, in terms of promoting the NDoE’s priority policy, the '1-6-6 educational reform'.

Around 140,000 copies of the National Mathematics textbooks will be distributed to six target provinces for use in beneficiary schools.

Prior to these math textbooks development in G1 and G2, JICA also had supported NDoE to develop math and science textbooks from G3 to G6 in the past.

JICA wishes these textbooks would contribute to quality education in PNG.
