This school was opened in 1959 and served the education needs of ex-pats in Tanganyika.
It replaced a smaller school at Kongwa. As I recall it was funded by the German Government
as some kind of contribution to education in East Africa, or as a war-reparation gesture.
In any case, initially it was for the education of European students. Tanganyika gained provisional Independence in 1960, and shortly after, in 1961 21 African and 19 Asian students joined the school and more were admitted each year.
