The diocese in Mt. Hagen, like many others, puts resources into providing primary, secondary and tertiary education. In January, the National Team worked with the Diocesan Education Board to prepare and facilitate a Diocesan Education Assembly. Based on the method used for the whole diocese, they helped the participants analyse the situation of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese, with a view to mapping out a plan for an improved and more effective service. The 25 persons present represented those involved at a higher level. From their findings, the team assisted in drawing up a draft plan that will be presented to the Diocesan Education Board for finalization and approval.
