A big thank you goes to members who have contributed photos, anecdotes, illustrations and memorabilia towards the production of the School’s 60th Anniversary Book. Your contributions ensured an attractive, entertaining and informative volume. We also say a heart-felt thank you to those who have donated $$ to the 60th Book to help keep the unit price low.

From its conception in 2018, the 60th Book has been nurtured by the ABHS P&C, ABHS Old Boys and current school staff. A former student-turned-teacher and former student parent volunteered to drive this project with the help of many others, who have done the hard slog as volunteers. 

This Book attempts to capture how our local Boys’ High School has evolved over the decades through the highs and lows.

Why ABHS Old Boys Club?

The ABHS Old Boys Club was initiated in 2005 when former student, Rod Cunningham asked Deputy Principal, Bruce Collins: ‘What's happening about an Old Boys organization?'

In February 2006, a meeting was held and decision made to meet the interests of former students and staff of the School, by publishing an Old Boys Newsletter. The ABHS Old Boys Newsletter is emailed free to former students and staff who have registered their contact. Provision for those wishing to receive the Newsletter, but not having an email address, can be made by contacting the School.
