Time Flies when the School is busy. So much has happened in the space of eleven weeks of the first term of school, that is, 54 days to be precise. Apart from the teaching and learning, we had the parents and Teachers’ Meeting, the Grade 12 Leadership Day, the Anti- Bullying Week, the Student Representative Council Training Programme, Foundation Day, Term 1 Exams, Report Collection and our two days of Staff Development over the Break. This edition has snippets of the events that occurred in Term 1.

It was only 6:30 a.m. on Monday the 25th of January when I was greeted at the Gate to the main quadrangle by the smiling face of Jerr Manguling, accompanied by his Mum, as he walked in to be our first student to arrive in School for the commencement of the 2016 school Year.

The month of April was an activity filled month.

Barbara is our Years 7, 8 & 9 Personal Development Teacher.

Break. (I have included some of the messages on this page) It is worth mentioning
that students new to the School this year had a first hand experience in limited
preferential voting when they went to the Polls to elect the 2015 Head Boy and Head
Girl. Congratulations to Geno Pulayasi our Head Girl and Barry Bagu our Head Boy.
Port Moresby Grammar School’s Foundation Day is an annual event that celebrates the founding of this fine Institution. The School was established by the owners of the school, Mr Donald Daniels MBE and Mr Graham Bamford in 1993 in the old Burns Philp building downtown and the School relocated to this purpose-built site in Boroko in 2001.
