John reading is vital!

Interesting statistics. During my UPNG days, I kept a mental tally of extraordinary students in my class from - guess where - Simbu, of course.

Last month I shared this small life story with a medical doctor/bone specialist - from Simbu- who looked after me during my recent hand injury.

Impressive stats! And hopefully with the Simbu Writers Association and its outreach program, more young writers will be able to join, write and importantly read.

Reading is still the best method of acquiring knowledge, no other method has come even close yet. Writing follows closely, I should think.

Spread the word over the hills, the mountains;
across the valleys;
across the Wahgi
from one hausman to the next
Our brothers and sisters,
Sons and daughter must learn
To read first.
Read a book today!

Hats off to the Simbus! Let others see and know of how your are using this powerful platform to raise your voice above the rest.

Excellent statistics, Keith and Phil.

The Simbu warriors take the lead. Much pride.

And well done to my Bougainvillean bata Fong for inspiring his fellows.
