Jayantilal Tanna (1960 - 1963)

I was born in Nairobi and was educated at Juja Road Primary and at ESS. I left for Bombay where I completed my B.Sc. (Hons) and went back to teach at Upper Hill School in Nairobi. Mr. Mendonca, our English teacher, thankfully had inspired me into teaching and helped develop my view of the world and our place in it. I arrived in the U.K. in 1971 and completed my B.Ed. (Hons) at Manchester and M.A. in Education at the London Institute,

I served as a secondary teacher in Tameside, Harrow and Brent, teaching mathematics in the main. I went on to become an Education Adviser in Liverpool and Hounslow and finally a Principal Adviser for School Improvement in Slough. I trained head teachers, teachers, parents and governors. I also worked as an OFSTED inspector. I have since worked for a range of charities including those for the disabled, frail, vulnerable and lonely elderly people. I am at present leading a group concerned with supporting community languages in schools.

I am married to Jyotsna and we have two sons Maneesh – a Tax Consultant - and Nishchal who is a GP. Nishchal is married to Amita and they have a son, Riyan.

My four years at Eastleigh were possibly some of the happiest years of my life. I played Cricket, hockey and volleyball for the school and Congo house. I made friends from a variety of backgrounds. I look forward to renewing old friendships and develop new ones at the Reunion!
