A WONDERFUL and successful Wowan School Centenary celebration was held over the weekend. Friday night saw some former students attend the Meet and Greet at the Commercial Hotel.
On Saturday a huge crowd of former and current school students, staff and community members gathered at the Wowan schoolgrounds.
Guests travelled from near and far to attend this celebration and it was lovely to meet people that you knew about but had never met before.
Although everyone has changed from their school days, the memories were rekindled and plenty of reminiscing was done. Many former students had not seen their class mates since their school days, so as you can guess, everyone has changed in some ways.
Our community has an enormous knowledge of history over those 100 years and education has certainly changed and many former students have fond memories of their time at the Wowan State School.
The Wowan P&C members along with the centenary committee have worked very hard to carry out all the planning and they have also compiled and produced a lovely book. The school grounds were a hive of activity with amusements for the kids, variety of stalls, memorabilia etc and hundreds and hundreds of people.
The oldest past student present Eileen Schluter and the youngest student present Brody McCamley had the honour of cutting the celebration cake. Congratulations to the organising committee for a wonderful event. Everyone will enjoy the school holidays after a hectic few months.
