Harkishan Mistry (1956 - 1958)

After schooling in Ruiru and briefly in Thika, I joined Racecourse Secondary in 1955 and moved to ESS when it emerged out of the black cotton soil mud. I was one of the many who walked the non–existent approach road to the ESS building. With encouragement and warnings from the very good teachers, I finished (to my surprise) with School Certificate. Following Higher School certificate - in that other school - I dare not mention the name in this august publication, and where the students decided that my name needed to be abridged to Hari - I came to London to study for a degree in Physics. On my return I taught at Kakamega and in "that other school" and also got married to Champa.

In 1967 I came to the U.K. and after obtaining M.Sc degree in London, joined a further education college in the West Midlands as a lecturer in 1968. There, whilst my career progressed, Champa and I brought up our daughter, Raksha and son, Vijay who now live in London. Following retirement from full-time work in 1996, I continued in the education field in a part-time capacity, served as a non-executive director of a NHS Hospital Trust Board and did voluntary work including setting up a Day Care Centre for the elderly.

Champa and I now live in North East London and would like to keep in contact with any ex-ESS colleague living near Romford.
