High school years and sweet fellowship | We are Brown and Blue | Rockhampton High School centenary | 1967 Rockhampton High School Magazine | 1968 Rockhampton High School Magazine | 1969 Rockhampton High School Magazine
Here is a selection of images mostly taken at Rockhampton Botanic Gardens on June 7th and 8th.
The majority of us were Rockhampton High School students during the 1960s and 1970s.
Where I have denoted a year, it most often is when the person started Grade 8 … but that won’t be the case with everyone. As well, I’ve mostly used maiden names where possible.
