Blast from the past

WHEN you think back about high school, a lot of things come to mind.

Whether it was the friends you made, the teachers you loved or hated, the classes, the uniforms or summer holidays, it was its always nice to remember.

The 1992 class of Toolooa State High School is ready to take a walk down memory lane.

The 20-year reunion is set to take place on Saturday, September 29, at the Reef Hotel.

One of the organisers Marya Barton is urging anyone who attended Toolooa SHS from 1988 (Year 8) to 1992 (Year 12) to come along.

"We have around 60 confirmed and are hoping for around 80-90 which is half of the school year," she said.

"It will great to catch up with former class mates and see where the last 20 years has taken them,

"We grew up in a time so much different to today, but I guess our parents could say the same thing.

"Technology has taken everything to a whole new level, parents now get a text if kids are five minutes late for form class, we're lucky that wasn't around in 1992."

But technology isn't all bad. Marya thanked Facebook for helping her keep in contact with many people from school.

"We have set up a Facebook page for the reunion but know that there are still quite a few that aren't on there," she said.

"We'd love to be able to get in contact with them also, so we have set up an email address that they can use to get details."

Everyone is also being encouraged to scan in their old embarrassing photos.

The reunion cost is $35, and includes nibblies and a reunion keepsake - any left over money will be put on the bar.
