Inaugural East African Schools' Picnic

Held at the Lane Cove River National Park (in Sydney), on Sunday 2 July 2000.

This picnic was held on the Sunday following the inaugural Hill School reunion held the previous evening. To make it a week-end of festivities, it was decided to invite former staff and students who had attended to schools throughout East Africa plus their partners to join us for the picnic the following day.

These photographs were originally hosted on the now defunct FungaSafari Web site. I am grateful to Nick Croft — ex St Michael's & St George's Iringa for hosting these photographs as well details relating to all subsequent picnics. To view these subsequent picnics please go the picnics index.
