Sogeri NHS A Sorry Sight!
 
I made a weekend visit to the good ole school on 29/6/03 and was shocked at the apalling infrastructure; and especially the burnt out buildings that had the posts still standing as a reminder of a school that once was a pride to be part of. Though there were some new buildings (dormitories, etc) and renovated office, the general atmosphere lacked the charisma and spirit which existed times gone by. I was especially moved by the disappearance of the traditional "village" compound and the lack of maintenance on the sporting facilities (basketball, volleyball courts and Aussie Rules oval).
I would only hope that someday, this institution that nurtured us into who/what we are today in our different walks of life will be given the glory it deserves once again.

PS: I had some great shots of the school but lost them when me good 'ole computer spat the dummy on me. I will certainly post some on the board when I next visit there.

Just when I thought the world had fallen apart on me, I did a search in Recycle Bin, and lo behold!!; I've recovered some of those Sogeri pictures - the Rouna lookout, Koiari plateau, Crystal Rapids, etc, etc,..

The School Museum opening times are Sundays 2pm-5pm. The two weekends I was there, it wasn't opened. Note the state of the building and in the right background, standing posts of burnt down classrooms.

:D

Trobriand Yam House (or lack thereof)

What was once the pride of the Milne Bay students who tirelessly kept the yam house in order, including myself. The emptiness tells a story of a culture that may be in educational institutions today - a forgotten or erosion of traditional cultures and values.

I don't know what it is used for now; maybe as a classroom.

Koiari Plateau

The Koiari Plateau as seen from abeam the music classroom. Famed for the pineapple patches that attracted students to partake in the harvest at odd hours of midnight. The purpose??...to make home (dormitory) brew beer.
