Mbeya / Re: Names I remember from Mbeya School 1951 to 1957
« Last post by Big Ben on 18 February, 2014, 01:35 »
Hi Rosemarie,
I enjoyed reading your post with all the names, many I remember.    I cannot remember you tho'.    My name is Gill (bennett) Kopy, and I was friends with Rachel Wenban-Smith and  Joan Brackfield .   I was in Livingston House.     A couple of my memories are:
The midnight feast on the train heading back to school
Being threatened with death by Miss White if I damaged her violin (the others were too small for me)
Spending Sundays with the Wrigleys so that I could have extra French lessons (he taught French and art)
Practising plays on the Crowder's lawn   Apparently the Crowders lived on Vancouver Island at some stage.
Fun Girl Guide get togethers in Mbeya
The Lagopolous sisters going around bed to bed hitting the occupant with a pillow
Dancing in the hall and starting a snowball dance with my then heart throb, Peter Bradley
The river garden
Climbing the trees down by the far hockey pitch.
Making the plain bread and butter into sandwiches with nasturtium leaves
Getting beaten by the teachers in a netball match, students vs teachers
Singing after bath time in the shoe room
Sister and the razor she used to remove those warts we used to get on our feet (can't remember what they're called)

and probably lots more !!

Odd that there is a criticism of a bullying headteacher. I worked there from 1980-1982 and the same applied then.A pity because apart from the Head it was very enjoyable.

Arusha School / Teacher at Arusha School called Miss Harris or Mrs Joy
« Last post by Pbeadle1 on 06 February, 2014, 16:36 »
Does anyone remember a teacher at Arusha School called Cosette Harris or Miss Harris who married another teacher called Neville Joy? This is my mother and she is in the early stages of dementia and the thing that brings her to life is her time in Arusha. She climbed Kilimanjaro in 1953 so was definitely there then but may have been there a few years before that.

I just want to be able to connect with her through someone that may remember her??? She had very thick black hair with very blue eyes and was quite beautiful. I think I have attached a picture but this is my first time on a forum.

I would love to hear from anyone at all.

Thanks

I understand from my publisher that it is now widely available again. The early ones were proof copies only.

I am unable to be at the conference unfortunately, I am working out in Vietnam so tied up contractwise until February.

Hi Richard, I have just come across this site and have so many memories of Tanganyika/Tanzania. Thanks for the photos on Flicker, some very interesting. I will have to find out how to get mine there to share. Have many from Arusha School, Tanga and Dar. Will keep an eye on this site for more news.  George

Terry was in Nachingwea from 61-65, and subsequently moved to Zimbabwe. He was best man at my wedding in 1966, and I would love to get in touch again. Does anyone know anything of him?

Not self promotion - just the sort of post to be encouraged.

Where can we get a copy - Amazon says out of stock?

Will you be at the GWEAA conference  in November? http://gweaa.com/

Dear All,

At risk of being accused of self promotion, I thought this may be of interest to one or two of you.

Best Wishes
