Hi,
Good to hear someone else enjoyed their childhood their without any politics. Was your fathers name Bailey?? If so we must have all been about the same time. I seem to recall we had a Biology teacher whos name was miss Pearson. I sat my 11+ at the school during the summer holidays as we came out at just the wrong time for me to get it done in the UK. Its good to recall all the stories about life their and we all dieted on the Chilli cakes. I used to look forward to the Lychee season when they used to sell them still on the branch, cheap as chips when you see the price they are in the supermarkets here.
All the best

Andy

Hi,
I was also in Mauritius in 1969 when I was about 12/13 yrs old, lived on the base and me and my brother ,Paul would walk to the RN school every day.
Our father used to run the Beach Club Le Chaland and we would go there every weekend snookelling and shelling.  I also remember Mr Cook and Mr Sullivan. But most of all I remember Mr Reynolds the Maths/Science teacher, we would DREAD double Maths and Science.  Another teacher I remember was our english teacher Mrs Robinson or Richardson she organised a school play called Cinderella to show the parents. It was a huge success. Some of the kids names that I remember in my class were Jamie Dunmoe (football wizz kid), Lynn Foxhall and Mark Avery.   In 1973 our family moved to Australia and we have been in Australia ever since.

I have also checked google earth and the on base married quaters are still there..

Cheers
DaveB
