Reunion 2014


Saint Michael's Preparatory School for Boys

Soni, Tanganyika/Tanzania


1954 - 60th anniversary of school opening

1974 - 40th     "               "     "       closing

In the last 3 years Alistair Brown has organized the reunions in Oxford, England. Given the significance of the date 2014, Alistair has suggested this next one should be a big one and has already reserved the usual seats (and more?) at http://www.headoftheriveroxford.co.uk/ for Saturday 26th July 2014. Hopefully a large number will turn up for the day/weekend.

We have had over 30 'boys' plus friends and family at one previous reunion which was the largest ever gathering of Soni boys outside of the school.

Dodoma European School / Re: Dodoma European School

Hello,

I went to this school but the have since changed the name twice to Stockley and finally to Canon Andrea Mwaka.

It was an amazingly beautiful school and the community was so diverse with up to 31 nationalities. Our principal was Mr. Warren Parker, then Mr. J.Horrocks.

My favourite teacher was Mrs.Window who taught us English and Literature. She is now a deacon in the Anglican Church. These are some of the most beautiful memories I have of my life.

Mbeya / Re: Mbeya School

Hi Valerie,
I remember your name very well, and I also lived in Dodoma!  I and all my siblings went to Mbeya, Peter Quennell in 1949, Luise in 1952, I (Pamela Quennell) went there from 1954 until 1959, and my younger brother Julian from 1956 to 1959.
I remeber:
The German nurse who used to give you a penicillin jab on each side of your bottom on alternate days from even a minor cold(I ended up with a rash which was an allergy to penicillin, but the Headmaster thought I had measles and letters were sent home to all parents to say there was a threat of a measles epidemic!
Keeping chameleons in shoe boxes
The African drummer who told us to come and eat!  I remember chocolate blancmange, called "Tanganyika mud"
The river garden where there was a rope swing we used to swing over the rive on and there were giant dragonflies
The boy who ran away from the bus from Dodoma at one of our stops in the middle of nowhere. He apparently ran into a village and the villagers looked after him until he was returned to school, where he was severely beaten.
Having the strap for the first time on my second day at the school aged 8 because I had put my slippers neatly on the wrong side of my bed!
Playing amongst the fir trees and eating the kernels of the peach pips.
The long drive to school from Dodoma in a bus with wooden seats and green windows and being sick all the way.
Hearing little 6 year-olds crying into the night from homesickness.
The names of the staff I remember are Mrs Jamieson, Mr Mcqueary, Mr Morgan and Mr Wallington.
Having to learn italics writing which I found very hard and using an old fashioned writing pen with metal nibs which we dipped into the ink wells and the boys rolling up bits of blotting paper and dipping them in ink and then firing them around the classroom!
Singind in the choir in cassocks which were too hot and fainting.
The boy who fainted from having an injection and coming back into the hall, and fainting right through the glass doors! CRASH!
Saturday night, movie night seeing all the old black and white movies of Charlie Chaplin etc.
Our excitement when we got parcels from home.
I still have all my leeters I sent home so I shall put them on this site, watch this space!
I now live in New Zeland.

Arusha School / Re-visiting Arusha
« Last post by Dhru on 23 July, 2013, 11:18 »
Hello - I am visiting Arusha in August after 37 years! I'm hoping the School will be a highlight as my young family are with me, and I hope to show them around. Not sure what to expect, but I hope to share good memories. Some of my teachers during my time were Miss Courtney, Miss Hancock (swimming), Miss Trenary (of Australia), and Mr Dalal. I'll try and take some pics to share on this site.

hello Maria,

I just noticed that you posted a note in November of 2012. Its now June of 2013. Sorry, I go to college- all those school papers, exams what a nightmare. ----- I'm the grandson of Elizabeth Minnery (John Minnery sister). Elizabeth Minnery married Edward Murray (my grandfather)- Son- My Dad is Robert Murray. He married Elizabeth Spiers. Both my parents are from Scotland. Dad is from Johnstone and Mom is from Glasgow. They both immigrated to the US in January 1960. They first lived in New Jersey and later moved to Detroit Michigan, where I was born. I live in the suburbs of Detroit - Macomb Michigan. My father told Us many stories of his uncle John Minnery- his life in Africa. I would love to hear from you and your family. I can be contacted at my email- 67johnmurray@gmail.com
