My brother and I were students at Arusha School from 1969 to 1974. My brother (Kirit Patel) was six and I was eight years of age when our parents boarded us on to the East African Bus service chartered by the School in Iringa. From then on the next seven years were an adventure. Our home was in Tukuyu and the trip to School was a three day trip. Every three months we would go home for a month and then back again. Coming across your web sight took me back to the most interesting part of my life. I thank you for the information and look forward to hearing from more of my fellow students. My brother and I reside in the USA now. Thanks you

Arusha School - The best!!!
Thanks on a most amazing web site. I was at Arusha School from 1970 to 1975 and saw many many names of people I fondly remember. In fact all my brotheres and sisters were there too - Francis, Lucy, Flora and David.
Can you please let me know how I can get in touch with people who were at Arusha School? In particular I would like to get in touch with Kirit Patel, Dipak Patel, and Rashna Hackett (Jiwany)
Once again congratulations on an excellent web site.

I was in Arusha School Between 1974 and 1977. I have very many fond memories of the school. I have been looking for Maxine Hayward Shott. The last I heard she was somewhere in Guernsey. Maxine's father was living up in the Usambara mountains (tea plantation).
Maxine I have never stopped thinking about you, if any one knows her whereabouts please, please get in touch.
