Going back to school

REMEMBER the days of the old school yard, when you used to laugh a lot?

Well, so do those who attended Warwick State High School over the past 100 years.

Thousands of past and present students and teachers filled the WSHS campus at the weekend to celebrate the school's centenary.

Chairwoman of the centenary committee Janet Reid said the celebrations had been nothing short of outstanding.

"Everything has gone really well and we're extremely pleased with the response we've had," Mrs Reid said.

"It just shows how important your school days are."

Mrs Reid said everyone was happy and pleased to be there.

"We've had very positive feedback and the food's been good, the parking's been good and council have been very co-operative with all the parking," she said.

"Plus we've had excellent weather."

With many out-of-towners flocking to the Rose City for the event, the economical injection into the community could only be good news.

"It's all local catering and venues, with community service clubs here helping out," Mrs Reid said.

P&C president Mark Wheeldon said it was times like these that really brought the community together.

"A lot of them (people who helped with the event) are past students themselves so they're giving back to the school," Mr Wheeldon said.

He said the positive response from people was rewarding.

"We just provide them an opportunity to catch up and seeing them all here just makes it all worth it," Mr Wheeldon said.

Committee member Margaret Bryant was one of the 11 people selected to plant a tree at the front of the school, and did it to commemorate the significant role WSHS played in her life.
