1980-1986 Arusha School Alumni
I am so glad to see that Arusha School is still in so many people's hearts and minds.
I came across the website in general surfing.
I was at Arusha School from 1980 to 1986 as a student and 1974 todate (2004) as a resident.
I am still at Arusha School because one of my parents is a teacher there. I was born in 1974 while my mother (Miss B. Ngowi) was a teacher and still is (probably the longest serving teacher now). However, right now I am working in Dar es Salaam as a Tutorial Assistant at University College of Lands and Architectural Studies (UCLAS) but I often go to Arusha School at least twice a year.

I was browsing through the net and thought I reach out and search for info on my former primary school. I am so amazed at how much lotso former pupils have managed to make contact, as most still visit,others plan to do so in the long run.
I was in Arusha school between 1986-1991, I so enjoyed my time there and infact miss the good old days very much. I now live in the United Kingdom, I last visited Tanzania in 2004 but was in Dar es Salaam.
I remember my best teacher (as we students used to rank), was Mr Sawaki, as well as he being my class teacher in my P7. I met Mr Dalal (tall) on my way to Dar, and was so surprised he still remembered me very well....Its also good to know a few people like Ms Ngowi are still there, unfortunatly sad some past away, bless them!
I have but all in vain, been trying to get in contact with one of my old school friends, Linda Maita. Does any one know where she is or how i could get in contact with her. I also would like to get in contact with Emili Mwenewanda, if any one can help, we got confirmed together at Christ Church, still have a foto of us together.
I would love to link up with most of the former people i was with especially during P6 and P7. i am shocked but amazed to hear the tortois's still there, alive and kicking. I mean, they were very old the time i was there!
I have taken an interest in this and will eventually get my self to reading and knowing alot more about tortois's as living creatures.
Everyone involved in making this site happen, Your doing a very great job and thanks to you all. Reading a few feed backs, i noticed a name thats so familair, Fiona Musana..Our families knew each other. i hope some day i will be able to meet all the people i intend to, through your help.
Keep up the good job and the good spirit going!

well i guess i fall in a younger generation of Arusha School Alumni, but all in all.. comning across this site really made my day. It's lovely to read all the beautiful memories people have of Arusha school.
Well, just to let those who were there in the 70s and 80s, some teachers are still there today, the likes of Ms Ngowi, Ms Walala, Mr Kaale and they are still going strong...
Our darling Tortoise is still going strong too...
As for Allen Moore, the old colonial house you lived in is still there...i live in the same area...
i hope you will soon be able to establish an official alumni site.
keep up the good work!
All the best.

Arusha school made our childhood worth it
Having been away from Arusha for sometime, I do often think of the school I attended in the 70's! Arusha school - as I wrote in an article in your paper two years ago - will always remain a special place in my heart.
I recall the Mrs. Walala's, Mr. N. Dalal, Mr. Y. Dalal, Mr. Lyimo, Miss Masinde, Miss Heddles, Miss Smith, Mr. Mkombo, Miss. Ngowi, Mrs. Omari, Mr. Kaale, Miss. Kimathi, Mrs. Ngaliyanguo, my late mother, Mrs. Musana...the list is endless. I must admit that each and everyone of the teachers in Arusha School (as we knew it then) made our lives what they are today.
I would like to propose that an alumni be formed...it helps to maintain touch with the past because it really helps the future. How about if we start thinking about that? How about Arusha School authorities, do you have any objection to this?
Once again, I would like to say thanks to the teachers and support staff who were in Arusha School in the 70's and 80's...you made our childhood worth it!

Miss Ngowi, currently the longest serving teacher, is retiring as a teacher this year 2008.
I recently (February 2008) visited the school and had talks with Ms. Ngowi, the Headmaster Mr. Kaniki and Music Teacher Mr. Liheta at different times.
We have in principle agreed to have a music show in Dar towards the end of this year in honour of Ms. Ngowi.
I think the success of the event will depend on willingness of fellow alumni to participate in the preparations.
We need to find a venue, accomodation for the students (most will be at their parents homes) etc. For those interested please let us be in touch. My mobile is 0754268568.
The school is currently undergoing major rehabilitation. I saw the kitchen, swimming pool, laundry place being rehabilitated. The bathrooms now have solar power heaters for hotwater. I am informed that rehabilitation is going on and will also cover the assembly hall etc.
If you get time while in Arusha try to pass by and see the school.
