Philip (Phil) Maitland Le Feuvre

House: Clive
Years: 1967-1969

Arrived at the school in the 3rd term of 1967, and immediately was recruited into the school band, where I worked very closely with Bertie Lockhart, re-writing the words for the school song – from “God Bless the Prince of Wales” to “God Bless Nairobi School”. Was head of brass for two years and did O-level music thanks only to Bertie’s efforts which were reciprocated by regular visits to his house to wash his dogs whilst hoping for a sight of his lovely daughters.

Remember pushing the ‘sumuni’ across the prefects’ common room floor with the nose, whilst being encouraged with wet rams-tails! Always trying to get to the front of the queue at the tuck shop to get the limited supply of warm sausage rolls – made easier in the 4th form when the studies were right next to the tuck shop. The annual dormitory fight when they opened the doors between Clive and Scott, when all hell broke loose – armed with hockey balls, and whatever came to hand.

Played every sport possible for house and school, especially 1st XI cricket and 1st XV rugby, which I continued at Impala Club on returning to Kenya in 1974 where I taught at Braeburn House School.

Emigrated to South Africa in January 1977 and settled in Johannesburg ostensibly for two years. 33 years later, still here running a financial services practise. Married to Sandra with three children – Shaun, Kimberley and Lexi.

In what spare time I have I enjoy visits to the bush, fly fishing and holidays down the coast at our place in Natal.

Would be pleased to organise and challenge any Old Cambrians to a game of golf at one of our magnificent golf courses in South Africa. Also would like to get together with any Joburg OCs – perhaps we can have lunch at the Wanderers Club sometime ........ please contact me via the Webmaster if you’re interested.
