WOOLOOGA State School students and centenary committee members gathered to sort through the many photographs and memorabilia collected in the lead-up to the school's centenary celebrations.

The school celebrates its 100th jubilee on October 6 with activities starting from 9am.

The latest changes to the Privacy Act this year means any student who has attended the school in the past 15 years is asked to contact the principal to arrange permission for student names and photographs to be publicised in the centenary booklet.

The committee is also applying for funding to create a mural on an entry wall to the school to recognise the achievements and activities of the students during 100 years of education at Woolooga.

Ex-students and interested people are welcome to contact the school on 5484 7171 for further information or contributions they may have or to be involved in the planning of the October celebrations.
