A Visit to the Cinema

On Wednesday, June 1, the two top classes of the school went to see the film " Romeo and Juliet."

The parts were chosen very well, except that I should have liked to see Lawrence Olivier play the part of Romeo, instead of Lawrence Harvey, although he acted very well. The part of Juliet was aoted perfectly by Susan Shentall and Flora Robson played the part of her affectionate nurse.

Some of the scenes were tragic and some were quite amusing or peaceful. One of the scenes I enjoyed most was when Friar Lawrence was picking flowers in the early morning. I thought it was rather frightening when Juliet was alone in her bedroom trying to make up her mind to drink the drug, and I was positively terrified when Romeo was down in the vault. The balcony scene was a little long, and, not knowing the story properly, I thought Romeo was going to be captured.

The last scene when Romeo was in the vault with the sleeping Juliet, was frightening, especially when you could see Tybalt lying there with blood on his clothes; and I was hoping that Friar Lawrence would come down into the vault in time to rescue them.

Although some of the words were blurred, the film was very good and I should like to see it again to understand it better.

Hockey ~ The Baraza ~ Caught by the Tide

HOCKEY

Hockey is played in the first term of every school year and we have matches every Friday against the Gymkhana Club. On Monday 26th March the girls team from South House played against North House in order to compete for the Hockey Cup. North won with five goals to four. On the 27th March the boys played their match, North winning this also. On Wednesday there was a mixed match with boys and girls from each House opposing each other. Some outstanding players in these games were, Edda von Wedel, Valerie Ulyate, Susan Phibbs, George Afentakis, Margrit von Lekow and Heather Lamont. Edda who is in North House shot all the goals for North with the aid of Susan Phibbs and Susan Meyer.

As North won both the girls and the boys matches they win the Hockey Cup for this year.

The Baraza

My first impression of the Baraza was of crowds and crowds of people. There were Europeans, Asians and many African tribes gathered there to see Princess Margaret all looking very gay and colourful in their tribal costumes. It was a lovely morning and the mountain rose high above the scene. There were many newspaper reporters and photographers all eager to obtain reports or photos of the Princess and they crowded round the Royal Dais. We were very lucky because we were sitting right in front of the Dais. Her Royal Highness wore a blue dress and a white hat. She arrived in a Humber Snipe. When she was on the Dais a chief, named Amri Dodo, made a speech. After that she made her speech, in which she mentioned how pleased she was to see so many children. Then the presentations were made, after which a Land Rover came along and the Princess drove round the arena through the cheering crowds. She stood up so that everyone could see her. She then went back to the Governor's Lodge.

Netball ~ The Desert ~ A visit from Nairobi Primary School

A Visit from the Nairobi Primary School

At the end of the first term, Mr. Hamshere invited a party of boys and girls from the Nairobi Primary School to stay at the Arusha School. There were twenty four children in all, twelve boys and twelve girls.

They arrived on Thursday evening, 29th March, at half past five. Two teachers came with them, Miss Kane and Mr. Sentence. Some of them were accommodated in the Sanatorium, some in the girls and some in the boys buildings. After supper the boys played table tennis in their common room, while the girls had dancing in the Junior Hall. On Friday we went to Church, for a special Good Friday Service. After break we all had a free swim, which the N.P.S. enjoyed very much. After tea the girls and boys matches were played and the N.P.S. won both. On Saturday morning we played two mixed matches and again the N.P.S. children won. In the afternoon a Swimming Gala was held. This was a very close finish, the N.P.S. beating Arusha School by one mark only, 50.5 marks to 49.5 It was a very enjoyable afternoon and excitement reached fever pitch as the marks grew closer and closer.

After tea we all went to see the Rugger Match. Later that evening there was a film about a dog called "Lucky". On Sunday we went to Church for the usual Easter morning service.

The Staff versus the children match was played at halfpast eleven that morning, the Staff won, with a score of two goals to one. In the afternoon the N.P.S. girls and boys went to Ngurdoto Crater, and also five of our school. We went in a lorry and the School car. We started off about halfpast two. Soon we reached Usa Saw Mills which is not far from the Crater. It was about quarter past three when we started climbing and the road was very slippery. Very soon we reached the summit of the Crater. We had two Game Scouts with us and they gave us two pairs of binoculars. We had our tea at the summit and saw quite a lot of game, rhino, warthog and herds of buffalo. At halfpast five we started down. It seemed more slippery than before. We all got very muddy and we arrived back at school very late. After breakfast on Monday the N.P.S. left. This visit was very enjoyable for both schools and we hope they will pay another visit soon.

The Arab ~ Local Study by Std IV

LOCAL STUDY BY STD. IV

Local Study is done in the third term of the year and only by Standards IV and Iva. Before we went out for local study we were divided into four groups with about six people to each group and we usually go out on a Thursday morning. The first time I went on local study was September 27th, 1956, when we went on a Township Survey. Each group leader chose two people to study a road one on each side. We had to see what the name of the shop was and what it sold, and then write it down in our book. The next place we went to was Daresco which is owned by Mr. Bayer. Daresco supplies the electricity for the whole town.

The same day we went to Amekas Macaroni Industry, which is owned by Mr. Stylianou. We saw the macaroni going through different kinds of pipes and machines, and Mr. Stylianou gave us a box of macaroni.

The next week was very exciting because we went to Oljoro for the day in a lorry. We went to three farms and went to a cattle auction and we had a picnic by a river. Then we went to Mr. Boardman's house where we had tea and a fishing contest. The next week we went to the Police Headquarters where we met Mr. Clogger who talked about the Police, then we went up to the Boma and had our finger prints taken, and looked round the Boma. The next Thursday we went to the P.W.D. which stands for Public Works Department, and we were shown round by Mr. Patient.

The next time we went on local study we went to the Town Hall where Mr. Green, the town clerk, talked to us about government. The next week we went to the Town Hall again. Then the last week we had on local study we went to the Boma again and were shown round by Mr. Jones. I think local study is a very interesting lesson.

Films ~ When the World was Young ~ In Haveley Wood

FILMS

This year the school have been very fortunate for they have seen many films in the town. They have seen quite a good selection of films in the School too.

We have seen three films in the town, their names are "The Robe", "Rob Roy", and the "Living Desert". My favourite film was the Living Desert. It was a true life adventure about animals and their struggle for survival. My favourite film that I have seen at the School is "Winchester 73". It was a Wild West film all about a Winchester 73 and how it was said to be the best rifle in the West.

Other films that we have seen at School are "Belles on their toes", "Smoky" and "Treasure of the Golden Condor".
