Upcoming reunions we are aware of:

The Old '55 Annual Reunion:

Held at the Charles Hotel (509 Charles Street North Perth) on the 5 May at 5:55pm each year.

The Class of 1959 (aka Old 55) meets informally every year at 5:55 p.m. on 5 May. The date and time was chosen as "all the fives" to represent 1955, the year of the first intake of students to Mount Lawley SHS. Modern terminology now refers to the original intake as "foundation" students and "foundation" teachers. Most people attending the reunion turn up nearer to 7:00. Most people stay for less than three hours. The evening usually attracts from 50 to 60 ex-students. The evening is really low key! There are no speeches and there is no organisation. Mingle! Some students from the Class of 1972 always join us. They are also "Old 55" as they were born in 1955.

Our Bush Ranger Review 2014

Our Bush Ranger Review 2014

Congratulations to our Bush Ranger Cadets for their efforts this year. We have a video below, and a chance for you to hear from the Cadets themselves about their experiences this year. We camped as far afield at Bluff Knoll and Shark Bay, with trips to the Dryandra Woodlands, Wellington Dam and Albany as well. We cleaned beaches, fixed walkways in National Parks, added brush to dune systems, worked in the Project Eden captive breeding centre, and removed old fencing wire and a very large amount of weeds. At the same time, our Cadets grew in their teamwork and leadership skills ...
