1964 50th reunion

The 1964 Reunion

On October 19 over 50 people gathered at the Box Hill Golf Club to celebrate fifty years since they had graduated from Camberwell High School. Although most people lived in Victoria, only a few still lived near the school and three people travelled from interstate with Ben Korman from WA coming the longest distance. Guests were welcomed by former Head Prefects John Butler and Maree Elias (formerly Harper) and were brought up to date on what was happening at the school by current principal Jill Laughlin. There was a memorabilia table and a trivia quiz to keep people entertained as they spent their time catching up with classmates. A booklet of stories with 45 contributions from former students about their lives since they left school was provided to the group. At the end of the day Yvonne Giltinan, President of CHESS, told the group about the benefits of being a member and accompanied the group in singing the School Song. A good day was had by all.
