School Photos

We have copied the photos exhibited in the BSB and attached them below. We do not have all that many photos from the early days of the school and we would be happy to receive any photos that you may wish to share.

The first location of the school was at the Station Master´s house (Train station). Dorothy Langdale was headmaster and the school had some 100 students. Mr. Awad Tuhwani, far left, and Mr. Khalifa, middle, were the caretakers of the school. Mr. Awad was with us to the end of the 1980's.

The British School was housed at the Station Master´s house, where hotel Tibesti is today up to some time in the 1960s.

It is said that one day the Headmistress went outside as usual in the morning and blew her whistle to bring the students in to classes. The train driver thought that was his signal to go, and immediately left the station, leaving passengers stranded on the platform! It is also said that after that, a bell was always rung to bring the students in. Never again was a whistle used, even up to now in 2014.

At some time, we believe end of 1960's, we moved to the house of Maizigk Hamouda between what is today Dubai street and the old DÁosta barracks. The school photo show some 50 children at that time. We do not have the name of the Headmaster. Mrs. Daphne Swan was deputy headmaster.

1971 - 1974. Mr. David F. Jones was the headmaster of BSB. We were delighted to receive a letter from Mr. Jones in Oktober 2014 in which he generously helped us with many of the blanks in the history of our school. We are very grateful for his contribution.

Shortly before Mr. Jones arrived to Benghazi, the school moved to the "Sousi villa" in Belaun, Feuhat. We had only four classes at that time, two in KS1 and two in KS2. Teachers were Mr. Jones and Mrs. Tarling for the juniors, Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Swan for the infants.
The following year the school expanded to the second Sousi villa next door. A third villa would later be added.
