Elias Wranga, the principal director of the Cross Country Stem School of Excellence in Kiunga, Western, graduated with a certificate in Stem education and a grade point average of 6.250 and four internationally accredited certificates for outstanding performance.

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) education faculty academics Prof Dann Mallet and associate professor Vinesh Chandra described Wranga’s work as outstanding and had contributed immensely to the country’s development, especially the education sector.

“While undertaking the graduate certificate programme, I have seen some of Wranga’s exceptional Stem education work in action,” Mallet said.

“Wranga has gained knowledge and skills in project-based learning and integrated Stem education and immediately implemented novel approaches to learning and teaching in the school in remote Kiunga, to great success.”

Mallet said Wranga had demonstrated skill in engaging and partnering with communities and industry to build his school, and to enhance his students’ educational experience. He said Wranga was quickly identified by the Australia awards PNG short course team as a leader among his peers.

In addition to high quality work as a student, Wranga worked with the team at QUT to facilitate workshops on Stem education in Papua New Guinea, working as the local facilitator.
