Darshan Singh Chana (1953 - 1956)

I was born in India near Amritsar and migrated to Kenya in 1947. My primary education was at City Primary and Park Road Primary schools.

I was in the first lot that moved from Racecourse Secondary School to ESS in January 1956 in Form IVA. Mr K Lal was the headmaster and Mr A N Sharma (Senior) was our class teacher. After completing Teacher Training Course in 1957-58, I joined City Primary School in January 1959 as a teacher. Other schools where I taught were Highridge Primary School, Eastleigh Primary School and Muguga Green Primary School as a Deputy Head teacher. In 1975, I retired from the Civil Service and part owned Technical Institute Secondary School. However in December 1980, due to a family tragedy, I landed into timber sawmilling business. I sold the business and left for the UK to go back into teaching. Since January 1986, I have taught in Wembley and Croydon. In August 2003 I retired as a Deputy Team Leader in Croydon EAL Support Service and went on a “Round the World Retirement Tour”. On my return I was persuaded to carry on teaching part-time. I taught for another 13 years at Kingsley Primary School, Croydon and finished teaching in July 2015.

I am married to Mohna and am blessed with 4 daughters and 6 grandchildren.
