100 years closes in for school

IT might be a year and a half away, but organisers are already preparing for Gympie State High School’s Centenary from March 9-11, 2012.

This week Annette Bambling and Lyn Day erected banners on the Bruce Highway, north and south of Gympie, to publicise the event. One was on Lyn’s property at Chatsworth, the other at J Smith & Sons at the industrial estate.

Both Lyn and Kieren Smith are past students of the school, along with their fathers.

Committee member Annette Bambling asks anyone interested in helping organise the event to phone her on 5486 1136.

The committee currently meets every two months and already has music, art, sport and social events planned.

By coincidence, the site of the banner at Lyn Day’s home is right next to a Brewsteri Cassia tree. The Brewsteri Cassia used to be Gympie’s floral emblem which the committee is planning to propagate and plant for the event. The flowers are gold and maroon – Gympie High’s school colours.
