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
