50th Anniversary Celebrations


Principal's Report-

The school celebrated 50 years of service to the community last week end and I was proud to see so many people come back and enjoy the activities provided by the organizing committee.  A big thank you to all of our helpers with a special mention to Fiona Richardson, Sandy Collard, Silas Middleton and Desley Marks for their efforts. On Friday night over 350 people packed the PCYC and over 500 people visited the school on Saturday. Incredible! Friday night’s entertainment included an outstanding performance by Soul Mystique (former student Gavin Skinner and his partner Lydia Lim) which was absolutely outstanding. Gavin and Lydia travelled from Melbourne at their own cost to be with us and it was a true highlight. Adam Bartlett performed a number of songs and many of our student performers really added to the night. On the night, we were joined by four past principals: Mr Ian Smith, Mr Brian Hedges, Mr Frank Ascott and Mrs Desley Hodge - and it was great to have them reminisce about their times at Beenleigh SHS. People travelled from as far afield as Perth and we had 10 members from the class of 1963. A big thank you again and well done to all.
Can I also thank the following major supporters of the evening: The PCYC, de Bortoli Wines, Beenleigh SHS P & C, and  Mr Don Watters and to our many other supporters who helped make the night the success it was. Please see pictures inside. The school has a number of anniversary items for sale if you are interested. These include the Anniversary magazine, wine glasses, coffee mugs, key rings, stubbie coolers and biros. All items are available from the school.
