Abstract: This thesis is a history of Catholic education in the British Colony of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands and later the independent Republic of Kiribati. No contemporary account of the historical development of the Catholic education system has previously been undertaken. This thesis provides an account that contributes new knowledge and insights, based upon first hand experiences and insider perspectives, particularly the education of young women on the atoll of Tarawa. People from outside of the Pacific have written many of the historical accounts on education in Kiribati or elsewhere in the Pacific. In order to begin to redress this imbalance I draw on my experiences of teaching and learning in Kiribati, mainly in the first secondary school for girls to be established in Kiribati, named Taborio.
