Key Thought

  • For many workers and school leavers, any life aspirations for advancement in education or employment will be denied or frustrated if in the first place they are not equipped  with the fundamental and necessary tools (academic knowledge) to tackle the requirements  of these  desired advancements. This is where we at PIMS come in, giving a second but important chance to students in PNG for the last 24 years. We have a strong record over these years of sending our Matriculation and Grade 12 Upgrading graduates to most Universities and Colleges throughout PNG.
