Avtar Singh Mangat MBE (1957 - 1960)

After my primary education at City Primary School, I joined Eastleigh Secondary School in 1957. I have vivid memories of my experiences there, sitting in rows, taking tests, participating in debates, playing a variety of sports, mimicking some of the teachers,etc., etc.I had the privilege of visiting my schools in Nairobi in 2002. It was very nostalgic. All the old memories came rushing back - associations with friends and teachers, classrooms, stairs, laboratories, lecture room, playing fields, etc.

I left Eastleigh Secondary in 1960 (Form 4 Sc.) for Ludhiana, Punjab where I completed my B.Sc. B.T. I came to the U.K. in 1966, worked in Industry for a few years in London and then went to Edinburgh to do my PGCE. I taught in Primary, Secondary and Adult education. I am currently a Head Teacher at a Junior School in Birmingham. Some other exciting ventures I have undertaken include performing roles of an OFSTED Inspector, a Head Teacher Consultant and a School Improvement Partner. I was very honoured to be awarded an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen in November, 1999in recognition of my services to Education.

My wife Santosh, who is also a school teacher, and I live in Sutton Coldfield. We have three grown up children, two girls and a boy, all married. I was delighted to find that we are going to have a re-union celebration again. I look forward to meeting other past pupils, teachers and possibly some more old friends!!
