Out of stock
Rev Pat Jacobson has written the history of Ada Lee, founding head mistress of the District Girls School, Kihili, in Bougainville, PNG. Ada had been a missionary in the Solomon Islands from 1934 to 1937, when she was transferred to Bougainville, PNG.
In 1956 she became principal of the new girls school, which she led until her return to New Zealand in 1966, and died in 1992.
Author Pat had worked with Ada at the school for four years from 1962, and she stayed on after Ada left, for a further six years.
