Piano Recital by Ian Houston

On Saturday, June 16th, Arusha School was honoured by a visit from Ian Houston, a young Nairobi pianist. The first piece of music he played, was called "Presto". It was an exciting and thrilling piece, composed by Galuppi. He also played a Polonaise in A minor by Chopin and various pieces by Rachmaninov. We were very interested to hear two Bagatelles which Ian Houston had composed himself. Altogether his playing was most enjoyable and we called him back for several encores. At the end of the performance some of us asked him for his autograph, before he left to give a concert at the Little Theatre.

Netball ~ The Desert ~ A visit from Nairobi Primary School

A Visit from the Nairobi Primary School

At the end of the first term, Mr. Hamshere invited a party of boys and girls from the Nairobi Primary School to stay at the Arusha School. There were twenty four children in all, twelve boys and twelve girls.

They arrived on Thursday evening, 29th March, at half past five. Two teachers came with them, Miss Kane and Mr. Sentence. Some of them were accommodated in the Sanatorium, some in the girls and some in the boys buildings. After supper the boys played table tennis in their common room, while the girls had dancing in the Junior Hall. On Friday we went to Church, for a special Good Friday Service. After break we all had a free swim, which the N.P.S. enjoyed very much. After tea the girls and boys matches were played and the N.P.S. won both. On Saturday morning we played two mixed matches and again the N.P.S. children won. In the afternoon a Swimming Gala was held. This was a very close finish, the N.P.S. beating Arusha School by one mark only, 50.5 marks to 49.5 It was a very enjoyable afternoon and excitement reached fever pitch as the marks grew closer and closer.

After tea we all went to see the Rugger Match. Later that evening there was a film about a dog called "Lucky". On Sunday we went to Church for the usual Easter morning service.

The Staff versus the children match was played at halfpast eleven that morning, the Staff won, with a score of two goals to one. In the afternoon the N.P.S. girls and boys went to Ngurdoto Crater, and also five of our school. We went in a lorry and the School car. We started off about halfpast two. Soon we reached Usa Saw Mills which is not far from the Crater. It was about quarter past three when we started climbing and the road was very slippery. Very soon we reached the summit of the Crater. We had two Game Scouts with us and they gave us two pairs of binoculars. We had our tea at the summit and saw quite a lot of game, rhino, warthog and herds of buffalo. At halfpast five we started down. It seemed more slippery than before. We all got very muddy and we arrived back at school very late. After breakfast on Monday the N.P.S. left. This visit was very enjoyable for both schools and we hope they will pay another visit soon.
