Kyabram High School class of 1981 reunite for New Year's Eve bash.January 8, 2014 4:06am
Enjoying their 50th birthday bash are some of the former Kyabram High School students who completed their HSC in 1981.
Private nerves faded as the Kyabram High School class of 1981 greeted each other as if they were still 17 years old at a reunion on New Year’s Eve.
Over a late night chat a plan was hatched to deal with reaching the big 50 with the troops to rally at Kyabram Blue Brick at the calendar’s halfway point on December 31, 2013.
With the aid of social media, tools not available in 1981, the word went out to find past students of Kyabram High School who would have been in the Year 12 class of 1981.
Some former students were easy to find since they were still living in Kyabram. Others were a little trickier because they had moved away and, in the case of some girls, had married and changed their name.
Lynne Simnett (Beamish) and Jenny Marks (Gilmour) made the trek from Queensland. Kathryn Graham (former Miss Kyabram Charity Carnival Queen 1979-1980) wore her sash for the evening, Andrea Wilk (Salmon) and Dr David Fenn accompanied by wife, Geraldine, travelled to the ‘Bluey’ from Melbourne.
Almost 20 people exchanged stories, recollected memories, remembered classmates who had not made it to 50, and made promises to keep in touch and regroup for the next big birthday.
The evening was rounded off with a rousing, if somewhat out of tune, Happy Birthday to us!
