CAPE Clear Primary School hosted a reunion on Saturday 21st March, celebrating 150 years of education in the district. The very successful day reunited old school friends and introduced the current generations to those that preceded them. Formalities included guest speaker, local historian Joan Hunt; a tree planting by two of the oldest past students, Chris Pitman (nee Rowbottom) and Harry Lindorff; the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and a cake cutting with youngest student and only Prep, Dylan Harrison.
By far, the highlight was the presentation of specially made badges to the current enrolment of seven students by some of the oldest, past students. Approximately 200 past students, teachers, family and friends gathered in the school grounds on a perfect Autumn day. It was pleasing to see representatives from all decades from the 1930’s onwards.
The day was rounded out by a Spit Roast dinner for 80 people.
