Centenary was the best
A SMALL group of volunteers, who planned and fundraised for three and half years to celebrate Warwick State High School's centenary held over the long weekend in May 2012, have been acknowledged.
School representative Janet Reid received the award for Warwick's 2013 Community Event of the Year on behalf of Warwick State High School.
The centenary celebration showcased the rich history of the school together with its partnering with the community during the past 100 years.
A massive memorabilia display was collected and displayed. There were also school tours, student performances, dinner gatherings, a church service, time capsule and generation roll call.
Past and present staff and P&C members dedicated many hours to ensure the success of the event, which saw approximately 5000-6000 people pass through the various activities and events held during the celebrations.
