Keravat alumni group to form in Port Moresby

A Keravat Alumni Association is to be established at a meeting in Port Moresby on Sunday.

One of the first tasks of the group will be to coordinate sales throughout PNG of Barbara Short’s new book Tuum Est throughout PNG. The book is a history of Keravat National High School and its students from 1947 to 1986,

The book will be launched by Governor-General Sir Paulias Matane in the Gazelle Peninsula on 10 September and Barbara has announced that all profits from book sales in PNG will go to the school.

“This book tells the history of the school and from the history we can learn a lot,” says Barbara. “It may help the educational planners of today see what needs to happen to improve education throughout the country.”

Barbara says that she prays that the book, and the profits from its sale, will be a blessing for the school.

“We are all looking forward for a successful meeting on Sunday afternoon,” Sir Paulias says.

The meeting will be held at the Telikom Mambu site. “It has a Haus Win and trees all around to give us shade, benches, a BBQ place and enough parking spaces for our vehicles,” says organiser, Mannen Kuluwah.

Tuum Est will be available in August. You can contact Barbara Short about book orders  by emailing her at [email protected]

Sir Paulias Matane

Thirty minutes ago, I received a copy of the new book. It looks good and I am looking forward to reading it from this evening. Scheming through it quickly, let me say that it looks very interesting indeed. The photos bring back some memories of the past.
