THERE was an overwhelming atmosphere at the weekend as thousands of past and present students of Warwick High School gathered to celebrate the school's centenary.

Chairwoman of the centenary committee Janet Reid said between 3000-4000 people walked through the doors over the course of the three days.

"We had 900 people attend the dinners at four different locations," Mrs Reid said.

Seventy people in the 1912-1949 decades attended the dinner at the Senior Citizens Hall and a huge 260 from the 1950s dined at St Mary's Hall.

The Warwick RSL played host to 390 past students from 1960s, 1980s and 1990s onwards while the Warwick Golf Club catered for 200 people from the 1970s.

Mrs Reid said the number of attendees at the three-day event was outstanding.

"It's blown me away that this many people came," Mrs Reid said.

"We had people from America, Holland, and one guy from South Africa.

"People weren't even out of their car and others were rushing over to them because they hadn't seen them in years."

Mrs Reid sent her thanks to all Warwick businesses which supported the event and made it a memorable time for all.
