The deputy minister for General Education and Instruction Madam Rebecca Joshua Okwaci has appealed to the societies in the country to encourage girls' education and avoid forced or early marriages of girls.
Madam Rebecca made this appeal last week during a visit to the Malek Secondary School in Bor town, Jonglei state. She appreciated the high level of education among the students of Malek School. She reiterated the ministry's commitment to improve the level of education in the country and encouraged parents to take their children to schools in South Sudan. She explained that taking children to schools in the country will help them to learn more about and appreciate their country.
The deputy minister also announced that the ministry will supply text books to all schools. She said this will be done with the support of South Korea.
Meanwhile the newly appointed chairperson of the South Sudan Civil Aviation Authority Agasio Akol Tong has appealed to the members to work hard and improve services in airports in South Sudan. The members of the authority were appointed last month by President Salva Kiir Mayardit.
