Sogeri 2

Credits in EXIF

By 1957 Mavis and Norm had returned from the Torres Strait. Norm had two further teaching posts in Queensland. The first was at Anduramba, north east of Crowsnest and Toowoomba. The second was at Flaxton in the hills behind Normís
home town of Nambour. However, the tropics had worked itís magic and they once again looked north for a new opportunity. That came with a job at a school in the Territory of Papua New Guinea. The school was at Sogeri, just a few miles north of the capital, Port Moresby. It was situated in the hills at the southern end of the Kokoda Trail. Now with their family grown to include two children, they joined the small expatriate community where they became friends with the Fell and Ritchie families. Both the Ritchies and Fells had children about the same age as Andi and Eden and so the families often met to find ways to entertain the kids. Between 1958 and 1960, the family moved to the Morobe Province to Mumeng, then Dregerhafen for the first time.
