Centenary Celebrations

 

​It's time to celebrate!  In 2019, Rockhampton State High School will be 100 years old.  Planning is well under way to mark this special occasion with a number of centenary events. 

In particular, please keep 7 - 9 June 2019 free when the school will host important functions including: 

  • A Gala Dinner
  • A Race Day
  • A Morning Tea and Reunion Day at the School
  • An Old Boys Rugby League Match  
 

Throughout 2019, there will be centenary themes attached to our school functions to highlight the rich history of the school and the outstanding achievements of past students.

 

Please keep visiting this website as we progressively update the centenary calendar and provide detailed information.  

 

How can you Help us Celebrate?  

 

Memorabilia  

 

Photographs, report cards, school uniform items, trophies, certificates, awards, commendations, newspaper references, letters, documents, curriculum items, school work, books - these are important historical records that recreate the life of the school.

 

We would really appreciate your sharing of these items with the school.  There will be a virtual museum of memorabilia on display at the school for our reunion day.

 

The school will also be producing a Centenary Book and your contributions will be a valuable resource. 

 

Please contact the school on centenarycelebrations2019@rockhampshs.eq.edu.au or contact Kath Rumpf at the General Office on 07 4920 4333 if you are able to help. 

Alumni 

 

The school has established an Alumni site http://rockhamptonshs.mylumni.com/ for past students and staff.  This link can also be found on the school’s website on the right hand side under the heading “Quick Links” 

The record of past students and staff is a living history of the school.   

You are strongly encouraged to register your details on the alumni site.  The registration process is very simple and only takes a few minutes.  If you could take a few more minutes and tell us about memorable events, achievements, friends, teachers and characters it will evoke treasured moments that can be shared by others of your era. We would love to hear about what you have done since leaving Rockhampton State High School. 

We would like to include Alumni information in our centenary publications.  Please note though that there are privacy provisions on the Alumni site.  

Centenary Recipe Book 

 

Do you have a favourite recipe that you would like to contribute to the school’s Centenary Recipe Book?  If so, please either post to the school at Rockhampton State High School,    1 Campbell Street, Wandal, Q 4700, or email centenarycelebrations2019@rockhampshs.eq.edu.au    

If you were a past student, please include your name and the years that you attended the school. For female contributors, if you could please supply your current name followed by nee and your maiden name if this is applicable.  

Sponsorship

 

The costs in hosting a year of centenary events are substantial.  We will be seeking community support to augment the school’s contributions. 

If you are able to contribute financially, even small amounts are important, it will be gratefully received. 

Please contact Helen Lord, the school’s business manager, on the General Office number 49 204333 or by email centenarycelebrations2019@rockhampshs.eq.edu.au if you are able to help.
