I am glad to inform you that the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training Headquarters has appointed me to be the Headmistress of the Arusha School since August 2010.


I remember B L Jones, he was a great Headmaster, also the number 9 gym shoe he had in his draw. I used to be friends with his son, I think it was Hue Jones before he went to another school.

Hi, Does any one know if, any of these old headmasters are still around (post 1960's) and what about the teachers? are any of them still around?
Would love to hear any feedback from past or currant teachers.

I received the following email today:

QuoteI would like to inform you that the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, Headquarters has appointed A. B. Kitigwa to be a new Headmistress at Arusha School from August 2010.

I kindly request you to notify all Arusha School ex-students, stakeholders and all Arusha School well-wishers about this change.

She is working very hard to revive the School into its old standards.



Are they still around in the school?
