More than 45 people attended the Canowindra Public School, Class of 1968, 50 Year reunion on Saturday 8th September 2018 at the Canowindra Services Club. Attendees travelled from Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland and all over NSW and the ACT. The attendees were classmates at various times from Kindergarten through to Year 10.
Twelve of the attendees graduated at school certificate stage, or Year 10, in 1968. Four of the attendees were in the same class from Kindergarten to Year 10.
The class was delighted that their former Home Economics Teacher Mim Loomes was able to attend.
The Phoenix also received this letter of thanks from one of the former students who attended the reunion.
I have just had the privilege of assisting with arranging a school reunion, after 50 years, for the Canowindra Class of 1968, which was held at the Canowindra Services and Citizens Club on Saturday evening 8th September. What a wonderful asset Canowindra has in the Services and Citizens Club, a great venue with competent catering management in Ms Julie Fliedner, her kitchen staff and the service staff who took care of the 40 people who attended.
The venue was completely set up more than 24 hours in advance and done very well. The catering was excellent and more than ample. All the staff on duty were friendly and very helpful, nothing was a bother. We were able to enjoy the company of our rarely seen school friends and reminisce without being bothered or hurried.
Thank you to Julie, her staff and all at the Canowindra Services and Citizens Club. We also enjoyed a breakfast and tour of the old School On the Hill, Breakfast provided by the P & C, the bacon and egg rolls were delicious, and the tour was conducted by the School Principal, Sharon Hawker.
What a wonderful learning environment the children of today have at the Canowindra Public School.
