Welcome to the website of Camberwell High School Ex-Students Society (CHESS). Our school commenced in 1941 with 350 students in its’ distinctive cream-brick building, that was described at the time as ‘the most modern and attractive school in Victoria’.
On our website you will discover a fine collection of memorabilia, including our annual magazine Prospice, and photos that reflect our history. In his book, A Jubilee Retrospective 1941-1991, former teacher Robert Ewins wrote the history of the first 50 years. It is now available here as an eBook.
The Ex-Students Society supports our school with annual scholarships for outstanding students, and also assists those who need extra support with their educational costs through the Principal’s well-being fund.
We are keen for ex-students to keep in contact with each other through events, reunions and newsletters. All former students of Camberwell High School are welcome to become members of the Ex-Students Society. The annual membership is only $25. To join, please visit our membership page.
