Dodoma European School was built in 1951. Funds were raised by having an Entertainment Evening", with many people performing many acts. It was performed at the Dodoma Club.
Previous to the school being built, up by the golf course, classes were held in the club and at the mission school run by Miss Cole and her New Zealand Missionaries. Miss Cole was the headmistress at the school and there was another one or two teachers. I remember the Wiggins, especially Margaret, going swimming at the D.C's pool, Carole ? Aileen? Ian? also involved with the mission. The pageant at the school to celebrate the Coronation. The wonderful Ngoma at the Boma on Coronation Day when hundreds of tribespeople came into Dodoma to dance. The ground shook. How priviledged were we to see Africa in those days.
