In Dick Westerman Park on Easter Saturday, a group of the original students of Beaudesert High School gathered to reminisce of their school days, 60 years ago.

Also present were teachers, Don Tanner OAM who was the Manual Arts teacher and Denis Luttrell who was a Maths/Science teacher in 1964.
There was plenty of chatter which kept up until 4.00 pm and then continued at a dinner at The Club for most of the attendees and partners.
These reunions are held every five years in Beaudesert and this year saw Ken Watson travel from South Australia, Shirley Mavor from Melbourne, Jennifer Ferguson from Kempsey, Dianne Hemsley from Maryborough, Peggy Corney from Burpengary, Greg Mugridge from Pozieres and Betty Johnson from Stonehenge in western Qld. as well as those from Brisbane and the Gold Coast to join in with the locals.
Brenda Dennis has been the main instigator of these reunions over many years with help from Patsy Waters.
