Since 1994 a series of Reunions have been held in Australia by past staff and students of the educational institutions established between 1944 and the present day on the Sogeri Plateau, about 40 km east of Port Moresby.  The oldest of these was the ANGAU Papuan Training Centre, later Sogeri School, now a National High School. Then a few km to the west is Iarowari High School and on the Plateau are also a number of Primary Schools.  The schools have always had close contact and support from staff at nearby plantations and the 'ELCOM' hydroelectric power stations at Rouna.  The full history of the School and the local area is in the book  SOGERI -THE SCHOOL THAT HELPED TO SHAPE A NATION   published in 2002.
     The new Sogeri Book is now available from all Brian Bell Stores throughout PNG !

This web site contains information and links about the schools and their history, and provides extracts from the Newsletters to keep those interested informed of current developments and future Reunions.  This site was originally established in 1997 by Ken Watson, Nambucca Heads, NSW, and it proved successful in making new contacts with people from Sogeri and Iarowari all over the world.  Since late 1999 it is being maintained and updated by  Marjorie Walker and Alfred Kruijshoop,  in Mount Waverley (near Melbourne, Victoria) at the request of Ken Watson.

Since early 2000, there is also a web site by John Pembery (now living in the UK) about the Schools he worked at in PNG, including Iarowari and Sogeri    http://www.pembery.co.uk/page%205/Page%205.htm
