To whom it may concern,
Please help me find Richard and Peter Hatter from Arusha School during the years 1966-1970 if you have any means of accessing their addresses, phone numbers, or e-mail.
I was reading Richard's letter and acknowledge his memories which are similar to mine from about the same years in school. I left Arusha school in December of 1970. If I remember right, I was at Arusha from either 1966 or 1967.
My name is Kirti Jani and was at Arusha during the Jones/Nettlebeck era. I remember quite a few things at the school that I was a participant of. I was in Horseback Riding School,Swimming Classes with ALL THE PLATES COLLECTED FROM THE UNDERWATER SWIM TEST, Soccer, Field Hockey, Rugby, High Jump, Long Jump, Dorm Leader, one of the THREE KINGS IN THE NATIVITY PLAY, The Principal's Best of Three spanks in his office ( I REMEMBER I HAD MASTERED THE SPANKING AND WAS ALWAYS READY TO BE RE-DISCIPLINED), The rider of the football field tortoise, to mention a few of the things I cherrished.
Some of the students I remember are:
Danuta Sheliga, Colleen Hoffman, Ian and Alan Alister (I think the spelling might be incorrect) from Van Couver, Canada; Said Ali, Mohammed Ali, I think it was Ian Fernandes, Lorenzo Trevizani from Italy; Possibly Kirit Patel. I don't recall Richard Hatter, but he may recall me since he was a horseback rider and knew Danuta, the girl with the braces on her teeth.
The Teachers I remember are Mr. Stones for sure, but I forgot the Riding school teacher.
Sorry I can't remember all the folks at Arusha Primary School, but every little bit helps.
My younger brother Bharat Jani was also attending Arusha if anybody can remember him.
Anyway, I am now in USA and am hopeful and thankful to this wonderful highway to bringing back the past and am excited to hear from those who remember me or re-collect the times during the years 1966-1970.
Love Always! Kirti

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

Once again congratulations on an excellent web site.

I saw the pictures of the swimming pool and it brought tears to my eyes to see it in th state it is in , I can remember having a many weekday afternnoons and many a week ends n the pool , I can rember the grand swimming galas we had there. I was the swim team captian for south house in 1974, we won the gala in all the events.

I love the messages from former students of Arusha Primary School! I know several of them and even have some pictures!
I was a teacher there for 2 years 1974 - 1976. My name is Kaidi Jones, at the time my last name was Bowden. I now live in Los Angeles with my husband and 2 sons.
I am probably one of the only African Americans to ever teach there(?) I remember Kirit Patel and have a picture of him on the large tortoise.
I remember Rashna and taught her how to do the New York hustle. I even sponsored one the the students, Abdul Adam to the United States. I also remember many of my collegues (including Headmaster Mlay) although the students stand out most in my mind.
I loved that school and all of the students. If any of the students would like to contact me, please pass along my email address. I would love to hear directly from someone.

First I have to thank David for dedicating his time in putting this website together. Thank-You!
My name is Al-Karim Walji (Alka) and I was at Arusha School from 1980 to 1983. Stumbling on this website brings back a lot of good memories. The old good days!
I made a lot of close friends but unfortunately have not kept in touch with most of them. It has been a very long time yet the memories are so clear that it seems just yesterday. It would be really nice to hear from fellow classmates. If you remember me please feel free to e-mail me [via ntz webmaster]
