  • Description

    Children from the Australian-administered trust territory of Papua and New Guinea recently paid a visit to Hollandia, capital of Dutch New Guinea.

    Ninety-four children, looked after by their teachers, took part in the visit, which lasted from 18th to 23rd April and financially sponsored by the Australian administration, Roman Catholic and Protestant Missions, sports clubs and by Dutch school children who were the hosts and contributed from their savings.

    Some of the Australian children arrived by air, others by sea in a small coastal steamer and a trawler. Most of them came from the Wewak district of the Australian-administered territory.
