From within the Department of Education, I had the privilege of supporting the indefatigable Sr Jane Francis and her team at Malala in establishing one of the first two secondary schools offering Grades 11 and 12 in the country.

Under Sr Jane Francis' leadership they did a superb job, topping the Grade 12 results in their first year.

Congratulations on over a century of dedicated service to education in PNG.

The Holy Spirit Sisters joined our ancestral Spirits in reaching out to Papua New Guineans over the years. Your work and lived experiences connect the spiritual realm of angels to our physical realm.

Our mere appreciation and thank you would not be enough for your selfless dedication and commitment to educate and make us find our position in our community. Thank you, you Sisters and congratulations on your 125th anniversary.

Congratulations to the Holy Spirit Sisters on their anniversary. It was a great privilege to have known them and to be educated by them.

They have done a huge amount of working education several generations of Papua New Guineans as well as in health services and in many other ways.

Personally, it has been a hugely gratifying experience in being taught by the late Srs Josepha, Walfridis and Mary Claire and the surviving nuns in Srs Inez, Edith and Mary Linda. I also had the great privilege of working with those in the health sector, the late Srs Gaudi and Kinga who made huge contributions to health care in the Highlands and that paragon of Catholic Health services in PNG; Sr Tarcissia.

Sister Tarscissia has at an individual level contributed more to HIV services in PNG than anybody else I know.

They work without fanfare and glory and their contribution to PNG has been truly immense.
