It was fitting that the Camberwell High School community returned to Wattle Park Chalet to celebrate its 75th anniversary. Exchange visits between Warrigal High School and Camberwell High School students used to occur in the 1940’s. After their day of competitive sport, students from both schools enjoyed a combined dinner at Wattle Park Chalet. The Warrigal students returned home by train and the 1947 farewells can be seen on our website. Click Here.
On November 11 2016 over 100 ex-students enjoyed a 3 course meal. Music was supplied by a fabulous swing band of 5 ex-students who played with the current Director of Music, David Hirst. Alumna from 2003, Tineka Everaardt, Senior Reporter for A Current Affair, also spoke. The highlight of the evening was the cutting of the celebratory cake by 2 former Principals, Ann Rusden and Elida Brereton and Jill Laughlin, the current Principal. The CHESS committee received many emails from ex-students who thanked them for running a most memorable 75th Gala Dinner.
