The UPNG Imbonggu Students Association (UPNG ISA) will host its wash out orientation this Saturday at the Gateway hotel thanks to Works Secretary David Wereh who forked out more than K12, 000 to pay for the venue and refreshments.

Mr Wereh was among other invited guests that turned up for the orientation last Saturday at the Open Air Theater (OAT) at UPNG campus but was cancelled after heavy rains. He has since live up to his pledge to pay for hosting the event.

UPNG ISA Patron for 2021 and Cane Constructions Managing Director Michael Ipa expressed his gratitude to the Works Secretary for supporting the students to host the event.

“On behalf of the UPNG Imbonggu Students association, students, parents guardians and sponsors of these students, I would like to sincerely thank Mr Wereh for your kind assistance. It’s a very big contribution and we are grateful to you. We pray that our good Lord will continue to bless you in your endeavours,” said Mr. Ipa.

The orientation is traditionally staged to officially welcome first-year students to the University of Papua New Guinea and the Association. The UPNG ISA theme for this year is a “Self-Reliant Imbonggu Through Education.”

UPNG ISA President Jerry Mathew said that “the orientation at Gateway will be a first of its kind for the association and the students are truly delighted for Mr. Wereh’s support.”

“We will keep most of our program and entertainment lineup from last weekend but improve from whatever we learned.”
