I was only a short while at Blakiston Junior School but I have fond memories of it and my life in the Avenues of Salisbury. I was never to leave the capital again. The school was built in block... More > fashion including the walls and various sections. These stood out in the early morning sunshine and heralded pleasant memories and experiences in my heart.

They contributed toward the Rhodesian education system and excelled in their profession. I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Headmasters, teaching and administrative staff, and the grounds men all the very best and to ensure that Blakiston Junior School continually moves forward in a positive manner and without blemish. It was built with pride; let it retain its pride, glory and dignity.< Less
