Saleh Mamon (1956 - 1959)

I was born in Meru, Kenya. My primary education was rather fragmented moving from Meru, to Mombasa (Kikowani Primary) and then in Nairobi (Park Road, Primary). I entered E.S.S. in 1956 and left in 1959 with reasonable grades in Cambridge School Certificate to join Duke of Gloucester School to pursue 'A' levels in three sciences.

I won a Kenya Teacher's bursary and gained entry for science degree at the University of Edinburghh. Having obtained a B. Sc (Hons) in biological sciences, I returned to Nairobi and taught biology at E.S.S. from Sept 1966 to 1972 when I left for U.K.

My career was largely confined to Inner London across 4 schools where I progressed from a science teacher to Head of Science. During this period I completed M.Sc (Biomolecular Sciences) and M.Ed (Science Education) both at University of London. I left teaching in 1988 to become a Science Inspector in Islington. After 4 years, I returned to school to become a Deputy Head and went to become a Headteacher, my last placement in teaching before retirement.

I am happily married to Zinnat, a Modern Linguist who taught History briefly at ESS. My current interests are philosophy, human rights, history and political economy. I am an active campaigner for Palestinian rights, ending the occupation of Iraq and against the erosion of civil liberties as a result of anti terror legislation. I have fond memories of ESS and would be delighted to establish contact with fellow students and teachers.
