In the early 1950s Br Barry Louisson, originally from New Zealand, travelled to Rabaul in the
Territory of Papua and New Guinea. His mission work started at St Mary’s Central School, Vuvu and in 1955 he was posted to Bundralis on the north coast of Manus. In 1962 he returned to St Mary’s Junior High School, Vuvu as Headmaster.
Br Barry believed in process and preparation, not just the imposition of ideas. He admired those dedicated to the teaching of children and was a key contributor to the Foot Enquiry which recommended the introduction of a national teaching service.
He now lives in the Brothers’ House at Vunakanau where he spends much of his time as an official translator of work for Personality and Human Relations PNG.
Br Barry is not just big physically, he continues to be a magnificent champion for education in Papua New Guinea … little wonder that in just three months 700 copies of his book have been purchased.
