Arusha School Matrons
Reading through all the comments on this site relate back to a lot of the matrons at Arusha School. I think they played a big part of our lives when at boarding school. Some of them where just like mum and others (well I’ll leave that to your judgement).
I was not the brightest of sparks at school but I had a lot of energy, this is what got me into trouble. I was a boarder to start with then became a day pupil when we moved into Arusha. Being a day pupil, I guess the matrons though I was a bad influence on the boarders. I can remember some things about those days perhaps every one else can add their comments.
I remember going on a trip with the scouts and because I was a day pupil at the time, borrowed some of the schools gear. Well when I returned the gear it was a little late, next day matron has me up in front of the headmaster, please explain.
Another time I got a nasty bee sting, you know there bees over there where vicious. Sent off to the sick bay to see the nurse. After the nurse had seen me she sent one of the House boys to take me and my bike home. Well next day of the matrons found out because she couldn’t find her House boy at the time. Up before the headmaster again, please explain.
Does anyone remember, after lunch you had to go and lie on your bed in the dorms for an hour or so and you were not allowed to talk. I remember the matrons used to patrol round the dorms and boy if you talked, you had to stand at the end of your bed till she decided.
I remember there used to be a movie on a Saturday night up in the main hall. I got permission to come to school to watch them some times. This one time I was early and waited in the passage way for the rest to finish dinner. Well as you can guess, spotted by matron, you got it up before the headmaster at assembly Monday morning.
The things they used to do to us, now days they would get locked up for it. Saying that I guess it didn’t do use much harm. Love to hear your comments.

Arusha School / The Swimming pool

It's so sad to see the recent piture of the swimming pool. I remember doing some great bombs off the high diving point, much to the discussed of the teacher in charge. Does any one remember sport days, when you you had to pick up as many plates from the bottom of the pool, who ever got the most won.
