In November of that year he began work as Principal of Newton Theological College, the position which he held for the following two years.

"The 'logo' of the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea ought to be the Modawa tree which still grows on Dogura station. Father Ted Kelly ... and Bishop David Hand ... both tell the story about it inside this little book of essays, which, like the Modawa tree, has grown since it was first started over seven years ago. With an eye to the coming Centenary in 1991, the students at Newton College 1983-1984 were set the task of preparing 'Fact Sheets' on the history and build-up of the Anglican Church in the Territories of Papua and New Guinea. It is never easy to discover real facts and we aimed at providing any future historian with as much accurate background material as we could find". -- Foreword.
