General Information:

LGS - at Limuru Girls' School 1924-26 - In 1924 at ten years old I was sent off to boarding school, but it was a boarding school with a difference. The school itself consisted of one fairly large room built by A.B. McDonell who had embellished it with a splendid wood carving of St. George and the dragon over the fireplace. We were a total of 12 pupils, aged about 10 to 12, which included the daughters of the McDonells who had founded the school.. Some of us boarded with that family while the rest lived with another family called Magee a little further up the road.
