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.

Hi Shaun [Conner],
Saw your link on David's site. Our times at Arusha School must have overlapped a little, although I regret I cannot recall you.
However, my father, Joe Newby farmed on the slopes of the Crater near Oldeani, and I think I recall your father ?? Known to us as Colonel Conner?
I was at Arusha School from 1965 to 1969 and was friendly with Fe McIntyre, Alta van Rooyen, Nicola Ghaui, and a whole lot of girls, whose names escape me at the moment!
I married an ex-Tanzanian, Louis van Rooyen, whose parents, Isak and Margaret farmed at West Kili.
Louis attended Arusha School from 1960 to 1966 before going on to Belfast, South Africa. My elder brother, Richard Newby was also there during your stint before going on to St Michael's at Soni. So nice 'chatting' to someone from that part of the world!

Logan Steiner ( aka Pat Green) Arusha School 1967-69
I was at Arusha school from about 1967-66 to 1969, and a few names I recognise, I think I remember Fe McIntyre and definately Danuta. I had a picture of Danuta holding a 'rounders' bat. I don't know if anyone remembers me. I was the one that fell down one Sunday, cut open my leg and they had to rush me to hospital and because of that, no one went for that 'Sunday' swim. It was all because I was racing to the dining room to get the cup of hot chocolate we always had on Sundays.
I had a best friend named Dorothy and Linda (can't remember last names). Dorothy always took me home at half-term to her farm. I think her cousin was Micheal Rothbletz (not sure of the spelling) that I had such a crush on. Linda was the one that alway stuck up for me when someone teased me about being a P.Green or a Green P!!! I'd love to chat with anyone about those days. I remember Mr. Jones, the Headmaster and his daughter Peta. I think all the other teachers, except the music teacher, I'd like to forget. They were very cruel to us kids.
Do you remember the 'Leek dish' we had and everyone hated it? We didn't eat it, so the next night we were served with no dinner! Jones wife was the cook. How many times were we locked in because we didn't shower quick enough? And those midnight feasts with a tin of Milo and saved sweets from the 'tuck cupboard'??

about: connecting with Linda (Newby) van Rooyen (1966-1969)
Hello Linda, saw your message. It did bring back some memories. I don't think you remember me. I am sorry I don't recall you. Attended the school during 1967-69 but I do remember Fe McIntyre with her long hair. Do you know where she is?
Enjoy your trip back. Keep in touch. Regards.
