Glennie Heights State School is 'the best place to work'

PAST Glennie Heights State School students have commemorated 55 years of school history by planting two trees during a gathering at the weekend.

More than 60 past students, staff and parents swapped school yard stories and caught up on decades of lost time.

Pitching in to make the day run smoothly was teacher aide Megan O'Neil, who was a student at the school from 1995-2003.

For the past three years she's been working alongside her former teachers - and she loves it.

"I love working with my old teachers," she said.

"It's a fantastic school, fantastic place to work.

"It's the best job in town."

The majority of the guests at Saturday's gathering were from the original class of Year 1 pupils in 1960 and 1961.

It wasn't all about the past students, however, with a number of current students joining in the celebration.

Among them were Year 6 students Sarah Grimshaw and Emily De Luien, who have both been at the school since their first day in Prep.

"I've enjoyed making new friends," said student leader Sarah.

For school vice-captain Emily, it's the teachers who make school so great.

"The teachers are all really nice," she said.
