First off I have a new email address as above.
Then for Jeffery:Hi there Jeffery . Cant place your face but I was at Arusha School 1963 - 1968. I remember the bee incident as at it was the school nativity play held on the sports field. Randy Rudolph was a Roman sentry if I'm not mistaken. His brothers were Rodney or Robert & Richard.
Do you remember Richard Hatter? He was in North House with you & roughly same time, ask David to pass on my new email address as I am looking for lost friends & I know Richard is also.. Do you remember any other girls e.g. Fè McIntyre, Linda Rowland, Nicky Ghaui to name a few?
Lolly … I was Elizabeth Ulyate at school.

I would like to be named as another Ulyate who attended Arusha School 1963 - 1968. It was great finding more details of my family especially photos of my grandparents.
The last I heard, Rosemary Goodman (now Peacock) was living in Zimbabwe but with recent problems I don't know if they stayed but I'm sure my sister Valerie Wallace would know.
And, for Shaun Conner:
I see you lived on Waru Waru … my family lived there till they moved to other parts of the world.
My father Malham Ulyate moved to Sanya Juu .the farm was called Sikarari. I also attend Arusha School '63 - '68. Richard Hatter was my 'first' boyfriend , can still remember sitting up in the big avo tree over looking the sports field. Mr Rushbrooke was headmaster the year I left. I cannot remember you but would love to hear from you.
Many thanks for replying to my email & apologise for not answering sooner but the last month has been very hectic for me.Thank you also for sending on the one to Shaun Conner who was in touch the very same day !! Should any other ex Arusha remember me you may pass on my email address.
It was a surprise to find the “Ulyate family “ site & see pictures of my grandfather that I have never seen before. Will send you any update if I can but I might open a can of worms…so to speak. The movie “White Mischief” has nothing to compare with the Ulyates & maybe one day I’ll write a book.
One interesting thing that does stand out is Princess Margarets visit to Arusha School…my sister Valerie (now Wallace) was presented with the Rusha Rusha shield by her Royal Highness.
Have enjoyed seeing what Arusha school looks like even in todays world , something to show my children.
Will keep in touch & once again many thanks for the website.
As a matter of interest I am known to all as Lolly.

Firstly can I saw what a joy it has been this afternoon to come across this site and relive so many memories. I have to say that I even shed a tear when I found a picture taken recently of the good old tortoise from my old school. I never guessed he would still be with us after all these years.
I was a boarder at Arusha School and like some of the others I have fond memories although most of the things I remember are actually of the harsh treatment we got as kids e.g.: lining up on Saturday mornings for nail inspection and the inevitable spankings for bitten nails, spankings on wet bottoms in the showers with leather soled flip flops. Ouch.
Unlike some my memories of the food are not great, I have not been able to enjoy Shepherds Pie since then, I remember corn flakes and boilded eggs on Sunday instead of the usual weekday porridge but the eggs were often occupied.
Someone on your site mentioned the dinning room boys and I certainly remember Twiga. I don’t remember any teachers other than Bryn Jones of course and Matron was Mrs Toft. I think the one that was keen on the slipper was Ms De Silva and I remember she disappeared rather suddenly causing lots of speculation and gossip between us girls. I also remember the swahili teacher who had the habit of picking you up off your feet by your ears if caught talking etc.
Moving on to friends from that time I remember the first boy I kissed was called Rodger but I don’t know his second name. Like another correspondent my first boy friend was Richard Hatter and I think I still have a picture of us both together. My great friends at the time were Noreen Coot who came and stayed with me in Moshi during the holidays I seem to remember and also a girl called Catherine Fagan who was Australian for Adelaide. I also remember a girl called Sally, again I cant remember her surname but we were regularly punished together at mealtimes for spilling food.
I will have to get out my old autograph book and look up some more names.
Please pass on my email address, if anyone wants to get in touch that would be great.
I think I probably have some old photos and a bit of old cine film (now on video) so please get in touch if I can be of any assistane to you.
