Meeting Hall: From Nina to Shobna Patel, Kotecha and all Uyui of 1967

One thing that came into my mind when I was reading the message from Nina is the memory that She has, over 40 years. Thanks for your flash back. though this message appeared under Uyui Secondary school I deliberately bring it up-front for other just to have a look.

Hi all,
Glad to find this site – I left Tabora in 1967 – went to HR Primary school, and then to Uyui Sec school (1 year) – don’t remember much – I remember Mr Patel and his wife (brand new teachers from India) who came to teach at the school – the school was brand new for those of us who were not accepted at kazima sec school. i only remember very few of my classmates – Rashmi Bathia, jayshree Kotecha, Ila Davda, Nalini Majithia, Shobna Patel, Champa Patel, Dilip Patel, and Manoj Davda, and Sudhir(???). I remember Pattni family as they organized all the garba practises, and going on picnics in big open Lorries (buses) to some dam(?). please reply if anybody remembers me.
Naina Hindocha
PS I have been in Vancouver, Canada for last 37 years

Husband day care center

Husband day care center


Sometimes you may wonder what the so called day care for husband are all about!!!! (if any). probably if collectively give it a thought. By the way which lady will permit her husband to go to such care?
Wakati mwingine ni suala la kushangaza na kujiuliza kuwa kama vituo hii vipo huwa vinafanya nini hasa. Hebu tufikirie wote kwa pamoja. Hivi ni mke gani atakayeruhusu mumewe kwenda kwenye kituo kama hiki?

MZEE AMIRI AND DELICIOUS CASSAVA 30 YEARS AGO


When I saw this piture from Nisheet Jethwa my memoy went bak almost 30 years where the now seen as stand alone mango trees was full of students scrambling to buy cassava from the late Mzee Amiri. The cassava was so sweet and delicious since it was spiced with bizzari and pilipili.
During half-time almost the whole school would dash to the mango trees where it was Mzee Amir station. The good thing was we used to share the cassava regardless of who purhased. Those was the days and if trees could have mouth to speak, the Mango trees in the picture could testfy my story.

THE ASSEMBLY GROUND WHERE THE HEADMASTER Mr K. PATEL USED TO DELIVER VERY LONG PARTONAGE SPEECHES

THE ASSEMBLY GROUND WHERE THE HEADMASTER K. PATEL USED TO GUIDE PARTONAGE SPEECH

Assembly Ground with long Patronage Speech from Mwalim Patel

This is the assembly ground of Uyui Secondary School. During those days it was at the middle of the Biology lab (behind the lab) and Form II- III Sciences and Arts.(front). For sure when it was an Assembly every body knew that it will last not less an hour because the Head Master (the late) Mr K. Patel (RIP) would issue a very long speech as a deliberate parental move to guide students for the things he thought was not going on well for the week in question.
In the series of the deliveries normaly the third Master Mr Lukago would start, then the first Master Mr Lukala before the Headmaster deliver his speech. though at that time we were getting tired of listerning of Mr Patel Speeches, today every one agrees that he was a real father and Guardian who wanted each and every student to have successful life.
