Arusha School / School Photo - possibly 1959
Last post by PaulC - 15 January, 2018, 17:25
A photo which was sent to me by Jane Holton (Now Cawson) of the school in (I think) 1959 or 60ish.  She's sitting far right, but if I'm in there, I've no idea where.

Also of the tortoise in c. 1995, with my son (now in the Army and quite a bit bigger)

Some more pictures. Mark Rowland and his little brother, and another, as well as my sister, in the pictures below.

Thanks for posting the photos - brings back many memories. I (David Kingsriter) was there from late 1955 to mid 1959 and my sister Joan came about a year later. I cannot remember which house I was in, but do remember being in two different dorms. I don't remember any names, unfortunately (names have never been my strong point), but I do remember wrestling with a friend almost every evening AFTER bath time and before supper. The drumbeat for meals is forever burned into my memory - dabada dabada dabadatada, dabadatada dabadatada, dabadbadabadabadabadatada, dabada dabada dabadatada .... (sorry, I couldn't resist ...!

Hello Val,
Just a quick note to see if you are still in touch on this Site. Very interested in your postings about Mbeya. I remember you well and you brother also. I am in regular contact with Alec Wight. I expect you may remember my brother Keith who is a couple of years younger than I. We did, as you say, used to get off the school bus with Brenda & Diane Watkins, amongst others, at Ifunda (between Iringa and Sao Hill). Others were the Irvines, Maclachlans, Jones, & Ephgraves. You were the star of not only the Nativity play but also a production called Pere Marlot I believe! Hope you get this and others get to read it.

Re: tunnels by the river; my family lived at Spring Vale, which was a short way up the river from the school (past the prison).  The soil on the riverbank was very sandy and friable, which made it very easy to dig tunnels, and also unfortunately very easy to collapse...  On one occasion my brother John and I dug one which was luckily near the surface; it collapsed and I had a scary minute getting out.  There were lots of cape gooseberry bushes around there (physalis) which made for a pleasant afternoon otherwise.
