50th Birthday Celebrations

50th Birthday Celebrations
12 September 2016

Visitors began by registering at the Library. Previous Jumbunnas (the annual school magazine) were on display and drew a lot of attention. A special 50th Birthday Jumbunna edition was produced for the occasion. Copies are still available for $20 from the high school front office. The high school jazz band entertained visitors in the main quadrangle of the school. It was great to see so many people enjoying catching up with each other. The Bush Ranger Cadets put on a sausage sizzle and the Tournament of Minds teams organised Devonshire teas. Visitors were able to visit many open classrooms and were taken on a tour of the whole school campus so they could see the many changes that have occurred over the past 50 years. A special assembly was held at 1.30pm and a commemorative plaque was unveiled to mark the occasion. Engraved bricks are still available for purchase from the front office for $45. The bricks can be engraved with an individual or family name and they'll be placed in the brick paving in the main quadrangle.

A Sundowner was held at the Yacht Club in the evening for friends to continue reminiscing.

Special thanks to the organising committee who made the day so successful!
