n Institute of African Studies Research Review - Chapter seventeen




When we returned to college, it was not long before Mr Dickens was appointed Acting Director of Education in addition to his post as Principal of the college. We were fortunate in that, as Director of Education and Principal of the college, Mr Dickens could in theory favour and authorise any financial expenditure that the college asked for. This seemed to be the case since the college library was generously stocked with many reference books and became the best reference library in the whole of the Northern Territories. In addition, the college was provided with funds for the construction of permanent college buildings on a new site. By the middle of the year, the classrooms, the dormitories and the African housemasters' quarters were ready for occupation. So we moved from our old site into our new premises whilst the rest of the construction still went on.
