Whilst in the Solomon Islands I taught PSSC English before the ethnic tension in 2000 forced a change of plans. I love Pacific literature, art and music.

A new school year
Mid January is the month when school starts back for Solomon Island students. No doubt it's the same in other PSSC participating schools across the Pacific. It's always good to get your new books and feel positive about the year to come. But PSSC is a tough year. There are so many taks to complete in other subjects, let alone English, that often students never get around to reading that novel or non-fiction book. It's hard too, when books you have to read for school aren't really what might interest you normally.
