We visited the Kalogeris family (Byron, Kate and daughters) in the late 1970's in Scotland. They were friends of my parents in Arusha. I recognised several names from the list, though we weren't on it. Dad was based at Tengeru, and Simba Farm on Kilimanjaro, Mum taught at Arusha School.

My mum taught at the school in the late sixties- we lived in a flat in the school for a while, then moved out to Lyamungu near Moshi. My brother Will and me boarded at the school for a few terms then. My mum is Sally Northwood- I can remember Mrs Byatt, Mrs Kalogeris, Mr Jones, and the matrons. Was too young (5) to enjoy it, but don't think it was too bad. Vivid memories of being sent out of the dining room for refusing to eat the vile soup and baked sweet potato! Also of catching nits and having all my hair cut off; being caught talking during rest time and having to kneel down in the middle of the dormitory for what seemed like hours, but was probably only 20 minutes as punishment. Probably got off lightly as mum knew most of them!
