50 Years Golden Jubilee

On March 28 2020 (SATURDAY) Walliston Primary School will be celebrating its 50 Years Golden Jubilee.

Exciting times! We are turning 50 and starting celebrations NOW! Get involved!

Past and Present Students, Staff, P&C, Parents and Community and Businesses alike are invited to join us in all that marks our special occasion!

Commemorations, Nostalgia, Soirees & Fun times!

 

 

Walliston Primary School would like to invite current and former community members to celebrate its Golden Jubilee 50th Anniversary on the 28th of March 2020.  We welcome students, staff, parents, friends and supporters to attend a Community Day, held at the school, in honour of fifty years of our wonderful school.  We will have so many great things for you to be a part of:

  • take a nostalgic tour of the classrooms and meet your former teachers;
  • be part of our official ceremony to recognise 50 years of our school, including reflections on the years gone by and a range of awards to acknowledge some of the key community figures in that time;
  • witness the opening of the two time capsules (one that was buried under the rock cairn at the front of the school in 1972 and one that has been held in the school library since 1995) and the collection of the contents by the original contributors (can you remember what you put in there?);
  • did you register for a Silver Jubilee coin in 1995? You will have the opportunity to collect your freshly minted 1995 $1 coin that has been held in safe-keeping by the school since that time;
  • the unveiling of a memorial section of the STW Channel 9 tower (it’s currently no longer standing looking over the school!);
  • the burial of a new time-capsule (for the next anniversary event);
  • group photographs (to commemorate our reunion and classes that were);
  • kids’ entertainment and activities (including some old-school games);
  • a dunking machine (who do you want to see dunked?);
  • displays of artwork and historical memorabilia;
  • live music performances; and
  • a range of food and drink options (that you can enjoy in a relaxed setting while having a chat and a laugh with other members of our school community).

We are expecting the event to run from approximately 11am to 3pm on the 28th of March 2020.  More specific event details (including an event programme, and lists of invited guests and activities on offer) will be provided as we get closer to the Community Day but, for now, please save the date so you can join us for the celebration!
