Half Term Breaks
Five Bailey siblings attended Arusha School as boarders
Shirley 1952 - 1956 and later as a matron 1963 – 1965.
Laurie 1954 – 1958
Richard 1958 – 1963
Desmond 1961 – 1965
Maureen 1963 – 1965
We lived on a farm at Oljoro just 12 miles outside of Arusha and therefore we were able to go home for the half term breaks. Over the years we took many pupils home with us for these breaks (those who lived too far away to go home). We certainly enjoyed the company and no doubt so did the friends.
The activities would have included swimming in the dam, fishing, shooting with a pellet gun, climbing Buffelkop (Oljoro - big hill adjacent to the farm) and general wandering around the farm.
Some of the school friends I remember who came out to the farm included:
Paulette de Scossa
John Lately ?
There were many others.
