Katoomba High School 1967 & 1968
Events & news of the senior graduating classes of 1967 & 1968 and of all others who shared those years at Katoomba
Next event: 50th Reunion 2017
This website started as a focus for the reunion in 2007 and has since evolved to include all those who left or moved before the final years in 1967 & 1968. We are also interested in the 40-plus years before that reunion in 2007 and now on the years to follow.
Each year there is an informal get-together at the Commodore Hotel in North Sydney on the last Saturday in November for anyone who wants to turn up for lunch & drinks. We are pleased to catch up with anyone from those years. No pressure.
The latest get-together was held at the Commodore Hotel on Saturday 26th November 2016
The next significant reunion is the 50th Reunion in Katoomba on the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November 2017
Details on the Reunion page
The class of 1967 wants to gather all those who were part of the Wyndham experiment to mark our 50th reunion anniversary. Those who were with us in those early years but who left before we got to 1967 will be most welcome.
We have tracked down most of that year with most now paid up. In addition we have the honour of hosting Ms Betty Price and Mr Derek Long for the evening.
If anyone with a connection, even a tenuous one, wants to come then they are encouraged to attend
A warm welcome to all who were part of the journey to the first HSC
