School Captains' book for our 70th Anniversary

The History Interest Club, led by our Head Teacher History are gathering information about all of our past captains. The plan is to create a book which has the male and female captain for each year on a double page. There will be the name and year on each page. Each page is intended to have a school photo of the captain (when actually the captain) and a more recent photo beside it.

Underneath this will be four questions:

1. What is your best memory of Penrith High School?

2. What did you think you would be doing after you left high school?

3. What are you doing now?

4. What is the best advice you could give to current PHS students?

We may be able to get some of these responses from the profiles in the back of The Towers but would enjoy hearing from as many former captains or their families as possible.

If you were a past captain or family member could you forward a suitable photo and your responses to the four questions. This will be passed on to the relevant students. 

Each student in the History Interest Group has been allocated a five year period to research.

If you know the contact details of any past captain could you pass this information onto the school via the school email penrith-h.school@det.nsw.edu.au and make it attention to Clark Stone. Clark is our Head Teacher History.

The intention is to present this book to the school in 2020 for the 70th Anniversary with copies for sale and one to be placed in the school foyer.

Below is the information we have so far.

The names in yellow are contact details we have already received.

The names with asterisks have sent us their information.

NOTE: If you have sent us your  information and your name is not asterisked our sincere apologies but is it possible to please send it through to Clark again?
