Students from Gunnedah High School's class of 1957 gathered in Sydney for an unofficial high school reunion

The Gunnedah High School leaving certificate class of 1957 recently gathered for their 60th year reunion.

The graduating class had their first reunion in 1982 at Captain Cook Park in Kurnell, Sydeny to celebrate 25 years since high school ended.

Next came the 40 year reunion at class of 1957 student Bob Eather’s residence in Mosman in 1997. 

After a further 20 years the group have recently held their 60th year reunion, again at Bob’s home.  Out of the class of fifteen graduates, six made the reunion, with regrets from six others.

Class of 1957 student Jim Russell said the reunion was at times difficult to organise.

“There was a fair bit of difficulty in organising this one as many had moved since the last reunion,” Mr Russell said.

Mr Russell also said planning for the group’s next reunion was already underway.

“We are still keen on another reunion but decided to schedule in 5 years, rather than wait another 20 years,” he said.
