Zafar Ullah Khan (1952 - 1955)

After passing my KPE, I entered Raceourse High in 1952. We were accommodated in wood and bamboo structures called the Bandas. After a term, the school moved to Juja Road, which was built to house a primary school. Mr Dikshit retired after a year, making way for Mr Lahori Ram Bassi.

I was in Form 3, when the school saw its third head, Mr Kashmiri Lal popularly known as K.Lal. A year rolled by and the students admitted in 1952 in Form I were preparing for senior Cambridge Certificate exam. The expectations were high and students and teachers worked at a feverish pace. It was also a test of sorts for teachers too, as ours was the first batch of students to complete a 4-year course under their tutorship. In 1956, the school moved to its present site and was re-named Eastleigh Secondary School.

After passing successfully my exams, I trained as a primary school teacher. But I was restless and wanted to go forward. I then took an external degree course and finally graduated with a Masters in Literature. By now I had a family of my own. I had the honour to be part of a Commission of Inquiry set up through a Gazette notice to probe into the cult of Devil Worship in Kenya. Finally retirement came after 38 years, I retired as senior Inspector of schools.

- As of October 2006
