Thank you for attending our 60th Anniversary Celebration (1960 – 1999 Taperoo High School + 2000 – 2020 Ocean View College).
It was certainly an event that attracted massive interest, particularly from the 60s and 70s old scholars and teachers. There was a really positive atmosphere as we witnessed many people re-connect and tell their stories. I spoke with two gentlemen who were in the first two intakes in 1960 and 61 of year 8 students. Great stories, pride in the school and many funny tales of it’s teachers across the decades – some of corporal punishment that would result in jail time these days!
A huge thanks to the drivers of the event, Shelley, Paula and Brad. Without their vision for the concept, it would likely not have eventuated and certainly not in such a creative and entertaining way. Thanks also to the teachers, SSOs, students, grounds staff and leaders who gave their time to set up, serve food & drinks, participate in the tours, chat to the attendees, clean up and generally demonstrate the on-going pride in OVC, which was very evident.
