Centenary Heights State High School - celebrating 50 years in 2018

In 2018, Centenary Heights State High School is celebrating 50 years in the Toowoomba community. So many wonderful students, families, teachers, parents, staff and volunteers have contributed to the outstanding reputation the school has in the Toowoomba community. To commemorate this significant milestone a number of exciting initiatives have been scheduled throughout the year.

Centenary Heights State High School Carnival of Flowers Float

Saturday, 22 September 2018

Centenary Heights State High School participating in the Carnival of Flowers Parade is a wonderful way to commemorate our 50th Anniversary.
Our proposed float and procession will include current staff and students walking, together with foundation students riding in the school bus. This signifies for us bringing the school community together and building relationships between past and present students/parents and staff.
This project has been support by Toowoomba Regional Council.

Beautification Project

In Week 7, we welcomed First Coat Artist Ian McCallum to create a 
commemorative Mural in the W Block courtyard. This P&C initiative has not only 
been a beautification project to be admired for years to come, but has also been a fabulous educational experience for the students to speak with a practising 
artist and observe the Mural creation process. 

50 Year Reunion Lunch and Tours

On Saturday 28 April Centenary Heights State High School hosted a 50 Year Reunion for Past Students, Staff and Volunteers. The current student leaders conducted complimentary school tours to approximately 400 guests and the Reunion Lunch was enjoyed by over 200 Past Students, Staff and Volunteers.
We were fortunate enough to have many special guests attend the reunion -  Mr Brian Jentz (Past Principal), Mr Earle Obst (first P&C President) and the majority of the Foundation Students from 1968.
Thank you to everyone that attended this event and made it a truly memorable occasion. Thank you also to the current staff, student leaders and members of the P&C that generously volunteered their time in making the 50 Year Reunion an enjoyable event for all.
