In the noughties (or '00s, if you prefer), the education bureaucracy seems to think that there's a place called Bundaberg State High School (BSHS).
But to those of us who were there in the '60s, it was Bundaberg High School (BHS), or Bundy High. And judging by the September 2006 photo below, with 66'ers Neil Robinson and Bev Pitt/Hault, the institution itself sees itself as 'BHS'.
In case you've stumbled on this page by accident (if stumbling is something you can do while you're web-surfing), there's some information below to help you get oriented.
But first, Johnny Hart and Brant Parker are even older than us (having started the Wizard of Id when we were about 15, in 1964), so it was no surprise to see this one on 9 August 2007:
On Saturday 21 October 2006, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of 92 people completing their Senior year. Yes, we discussed plans for a 45th, because they get increasingly depressing after that!!
This site provides access to information about the event, information about the 92 people and some of their classmates, and their teachers. We located (almost) all of the 92 plus another 20 or more members of the cohort, and many have provided short life stories and photos.
This site depends on the information, images, audio and video that people provide, so please send your contributions.
BHS is 1 km south of the Bundaberg city centre. It's bounded by Maryborough St on the east, the main railway line on the west, Boreham St on the north, and Barber Park on the south.
