Reunion of 40 years

FORMER Gayndah student Ken MacDougall needs help to find old class photos before a 40-year class reunion scheduled for June.

Kevin Smoothy and Kay Paul (nee Howlett) are organising a 40th reunion of their Year 10 class, which is planned to include up to 100 students and their families.

Mr MacDougall is one of those students and said the event was a milestone for the class.

"This is a significant event for us noting the majority of students went to the Gayndah State Primary School and born in 1963 being the centenary of the schools foundation,” Mr MacDougall said.

"Part of the reunion process is gathering and naming our class pictures from grade one to grade 10.

"However despite extensive searches we are unable to locate our grade one and two photo's which would have been taken from 1969, Mavis Slack was the teacher during those years.”

Mr MacDougall will seek permission from the school in a bid to locate the two photos in the school's archives.

"I am planing on visiting the primary school in early 2018 in an attempt to locate these two photos in their archives and any other material relevant to the reunion,” Mr MacDougall said.

"We would also like to present to the school the completed year photos which will be named with former students in recognition of their assistance in aiding us.

"It would be ideal if we could present a complete set from grade one to seven.”

Mr MacDougall said if anyone else knew the location of any copies of the photos, they should contact him.
