I've managed to get back on here - I wasn't able to before, so I sent you a message via LinkedIn. I've also found the panto picture and will post it on here later on in the week when I get some time. Was that Mrs Nettelbeck in the picture - I remember her as having short hair - not the glasses though?
I was at the school 69-72. From my old school reports, the following teachers were around (excuse the spelling, but the handwriting isn't always clear):
(1969) R Kassam - Form Teacher, Mr BL Jones - Headmaster (1970) Irene Smith - Form Teacher (1970) R Nettelbeck - Form Mistress, she taught us the "Kookabarra" song, Mr DC Nettelbeck/Laidlaw - Headmaster/s? (1971) A Gattnaid - Class Teacher, Laidlaw - Headmaster? (1971) Miss Boddy - Class Teacher, Laidlaw - Headmaster? (1972) Mr WL Cairney - took us for swimming - passed my Beginners certificate doing doggy paddle! (1972) Miss G Allen - says she knew me since 1969, and I was in the School Brownie Pack. (1972) M Lawery - Class Teacher, D Wilhoft - Class Teacher, Mr Nyakinsgani - Headmaster
I noticed from the net that a DC Nettelbeck is currently still in education in Australia (he must have been a very young headmaster!)
Hello Everyone - My name is Valerie Ferro (if anyone remembers me). I accidentally came across this site the other day and read everything with great interest and excitement. I wracked my brain trying to remember anyone's name, quizzed my parents and even sent them the picture from another post from 1971 - to no avail. Then my mother found this picture and I remembered my Dad had given me an envelope with old certificates. To my absolute joy, I discovered my old school reports. I think the picture maybe from 1972 Standard 4. I'm the smallest one in the front row (second from the end). The first girl, front row, is called Cathy (father owned the printing place?). The first two girls at the back are twins from Holland (one called Gertrude?, I think their mother did arty jewellry stuff). The chinese lad in the middle once showed us how to use chopsticks with two pencils and a piece of chalk. The african lad in the back row got stung by a wasp near his eye. Teacher Mr Wilhoft? From the reports, I was at Arusha School from 1969-1972.
I will try to put together info from the reports regarding teachers' names/dates if it helps with memories. And I also have some photographs of a pantomime that was put on at the town theatre (Snow White) - some of you may have been in that - I think two of the Shitakha sisters are in that - following on a post in another topic.
