It has my grade 3 class photo in it, there were 12 in the class.

Hey Michelle,
Great to get your message and hear you were in the same school. I was born in 63, and I think I started school in Wewak. How great you have a newsletter- would love to see it. Are you on flickr by any chance???

Sorry not on flickr. The newsletter is only the 2nd volume. The editors were Peter Morton from grade VI and Leslie Martin. One of my best friends back then was Robyn Martin - her dad was the Mayor of Wewak and owned the local garage. I remember te school excursion to Wewak Cordials and they actually had an add on the back page of the newsletter. That hill on the way to school was incredible - I remember the day the army truck we were going to school in couldn't make it up as it was raining so heavy he couldn't get traction and we slid all the way back down backwards. We all bailed out and walked up and met him at the top when he finally made it. My dad worked in supply as well while he was up there - his name is George Armitage and mum first worked at the Wewak Libary then at the army canteen. I have met up with a guy that was in my sisters class in grade VI - John Babao - he lives in the same suburb as me. Small world.

Hey Michelle,
sorry I haven't responded earlier
Do you remember if Robyn's father's name was Bruce... and did he play the trumpet...?

I wish I had contact with my family, there are many gaps I just cannot fill myself.

I am 48- eek- just turned 48 last week... how old are you??
direct email is mosaicartbykarenbaker@hotmail.com

Re Wewak school photo

Hey Daniel,
read your post on the PNG forum, and would love to see a copy of your photo to see if I am in it- or my brother. I think we were still in Wewak then.
my email is
mosaicartbykarenbaker@hotmail.com
feel free to send it there or write to me.
I am just in contact with a Grahame Wease- do you know that name- his dad was in the Army like mine, so I am looking forward to finding out more from him.
(your name seems familiar to me...
Cheers Karen Baker.

I am contacting you in the hope that you may know others who went to school in Wewak at the same time.
Cheers
