John Picridas

House: Rhodes
Years: 1961-1965

Occupation:- Textile Technologist (weaving), living in Pinetown, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.

Visited the school on 4th January 2004 and met with current Headmaster, Mr Robert Masese. Basically "Prinso" is still all there; wooden classrooms have made way to more modern brick buildings, except for one. Rhodes House in sad state of disrepair. Grigg and Hawke in good condition. Rhodes has changed its name to Athi House. Houses have been renamed after local rivers, lakes and mountains. Have some video footage of the Main School and Chapel, unfortunately camera packed up on me doing the House rounds. The Sanatorium is in excellent condition. The Jacaranda trees on the main road leading to the school are absolutely fabulous.

"Patch" is still well and thriving!!
