Therese Rein (Australia) Business woman and wife of former Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd.
I have known of The School of St Jude for some time but only met Gemma Sisia after she spoke at the Parliamentary Prayer breakfast in November 2009.
I was impressed with her strong desire to provide education for poor children of Tanzania and her dedication to make it happen.
One day, I hope to be able to visit the school myself. Until then, I will follow its progress closely and send my best wishes to the dedicated teachers and staff who are associated with it.
I also send my greetings to the pupils and my hope that you continue to be inspired by the school you are now attending.
