Almost a centenarian, with her birthday approaching on 24 April, Teresita Ahearn of Presentation Sisters Queensland celebrated the 8Oth anniversary of her religious profession in February 2017. Grateful for a “privileged” teaching career spanning many decades and “more students than one could put a number on”, Sr Teresita is also remembered with fondness for her 12 years as Mistress of Novices at Manly and an educator with rural communities in Murgan and Emerald.
