Gilbert and Jean Rennie Schools

The Gilbert and Jean Rennie Schools were established in the early fifties in Lusaka, in the Kabulonga area. After independence the schools became Kabulonga Boys and Kabulonga Girls. You can see them quite clearly on Google Earth!  Check facebook for some groups.

Some kind soul (I think this is Chris Waller) has posted some school magazines from the Rennie days. There are many photos of sports teams, sports records, and names from the boys school from 1957-1962.  The magazines also include some great advertisements for local businesses, and some 'where are they now' type entries regarding students who have already left the school, 'Old Rennians'.
