Oliver Cordell recently 'enlightened' me regarding the Arusha School website….. Very interesting - but regretably very few alumni reporting !!!
The website instructions are not very clear - maybe I am missing something - so please confirm that this is the way to send you my school 'information' for the website??
I attended Arusha School from 1949 to 1951 - and have very happy memories. Then I attended Prince of Wales and subsequently went to London to complete my studies.
Previously, my brother Werner and sister Annalise also attended the school.
I recall that beautiful Suzanne Franzel joined the train from Kigoma at Uvinza on our way to Dodoma - and the long, arduous and dusty 275 mile trip by Tanganyika Railways bus that climbed the very steep and dangerous escarpment at around Kondoa Irangi [memory!!!] en route to Arusha…..!!!!
I vividly recall the following names:
- The Ibsens from Tabora - one son is now a Bishop in Denmark
- John and David Dare - parents with the Salvation Army in Tabora,
- Royce Buckle
- Susan Wynn-Jones - now in Canberra, Australia. Susan & I won the 'Rasha-Rasha shield' in 1951.
- Diana Milner
- Michael & Pat Finnegan - Morogoro
- Michael Zibarras & his sister
- Johannes Pretorious
- Albert _______
- Elizabeth & Anne Palfrey
WOW! Now over 55 years ago - where did time fly??? Thank God every day for continuing good health!!
Would love to hear from OLDE rafikis - please contact me as noted below.
