Camden High School celebrates 60 years

Camden High School students past and present will come together on Saturday, November 5 to celebrate the school’s 60th anniversary.

The special event will be a chance for students and teachers to look back on the school’s history.

Past student and organising committee member Renai Mainwaring said there would be plenty of activities for people to enjoy.

“What we’re really celebrating is 60 years of quality public education,” she said.

The school will host an opening ceremony, classroom tours, a performance of the old school song, photography displays in the library and a barbecue.

Ex-teachers, Paul Brown and Ken Newton will also print a book featuring comments from previous principals, honour board lists and photos from the past 60 years.

Students will also start a memorial garden, where a commemorative tree will be planted.

“Everyone can come and enjoy the day,” Ms Mainwaring said.

“Considering there are a lot of people in the community who might be sending their kids there or knew people at the school, we have invited everyone to come along.”

Ms Mainwaring said there will also be designated areas for each decade the school has been opened.

“People who went to Camden High in the 60’s can meet their classmates and teachers and so on,” she said.

“It is a chance to catch up with the people you knew at school.”
