18 Dec Day 16: Teacher Training
#Then: Joan Antcliff was the Director of Education in Lebombo for many years and with Maria Antonia Santos was instrumental in training up women & teachers and bringing the role of education of the child and women to the forefront of Diocesan priorities.
#Now: Today teacher training is still a priority for the Diocese; see here.
Lord Jesus, we thank you that education is still a key priority within the dioceses to fight against poverty & injustice. We pray for those who are spearheading this work in the Dioceses today. Amen.
With thanks to the Bodleian Libraries, The University of Oxford and USPG Archives.
