Hi Richard,thanks so much for posting these photos! I wish I had seen them before.I went to Sao-Hill School from 1957-61 and remember the distance sign. This De Havilland Heron Aircraft with Princess Margaret aboard also went to Tanga where we lived. I was supposed to have gone to the Airport with my parents but did'nt want to dress-up so I vanished into the bundu to avoid that ordeal!!Tanga Hospital for me meant a broken wrist,Butcher Buck the Dentist and a 5 day stay with Malaria. Very best...Simon Watson.

Love to share my brother's remark on hearaing of the tortoises "resurrection" as it were.
"What glad tidings of great joy: that which was dead is alive again. We should name him/her “Lazarus”!
I wonder if we can be informed if in the next ten years S/h passes on?
Chers

I have just had news that the tortooise is STILL alive! An email from Des Bailey tells me that
Hi Naomi
"I can confirm that as at 30/1/2013 the Tortoise is still alive. This was confirmed by Kathy Barnes who emailed one of the teachers at the school..
I am Des Bailey. Was at Arusha School from 61 – 65.  I remember being at the opening of the library by your dad, but I think this was prior to me being at school.  All my siblings attended the school: Shirley, Laurie, Richard, myself and Maureen."
So there we are - a part of the School History still alilve and munching.
Thank you Des for the information.

I managed Poverty Gulch for a short time. It was a wheat farm on the north side of Kilimanjaro, owned by Kibo Coffee Estate. Early 1964 I attended a New Years Eve celebration at a local club must have been West Kilimanjaro. I remember vet Mike Innes. Gerald

Mbeya / Re: Link to Mbeya photos with names of students

Hi Valerie,
Your name rings a bell, but I can't remember your face I'm afraid. My mother - recently deceased - lived in N Tamborine Qld for many years and my brother Paul lives close by. My other brother Nick lives in Newcastle. Hence, we have a close association with Australia, although living near Bedford UK at the moment. My wife and I generally only visit Qld and NSW, but if we go to Melbourne we'll be sure to look you up. Barry, Denton and I often reminisce about Mbeya and our lives in Tanzania when we meet in Noosa.
Have a good 2013...Andrew
