Photos of the school taken by David Pringuer - 2008

E-mail to Webmaster - 10th June 2008:
After 34 years I finally made a return trip to Kenya and visited the Nairobi Primary School 60 years after I joined it in 1948. I also went to see the old Prince of Wales School; unfortunately the Headmaster was away, but I had a good look at the main building, the assembly hall, and swimming pool before driving past Clive/Scott, the Sanatorium and the Principalís house up to Rhodes, where I was a day boy from 1952 to 1955.
