Welcome to the website of Camberwell High School
Ex-Students Society

This website is dedicated to the thousands of students who have attended Camberwell High School since it commenced in 1941, with just 350 students. The distinctive cream-brick building, was described at the time as ‘the most modern and attractive school in Victoria’. The history of the school is captured in the hundreds of photos that have been grouped into decades, and in the many editions of Prospice. The website brings our history to life, so that current and former students can appreciate their place in the school’s rich history.

Membership

Former students are encouraged to become members. The funds go towards four scholarships to senior students. We also contribute to the Principal’s fund that assists some students with their education. Annual membership is only $30.
