I was in preparatory grade - or 'Bubs' as we called it - when Beverley Hills opened in 1959 and our year was the first to go all the way through to 1966 when we mostly went our separate ways. My proudest moment was as captain of blue house when we won the school sports in '66. I still remember all my teachers, particularly the famous Rex Neill. Enjoy the celebration. I wish I could be there.
My name is Jennifer Cosson. I taught at Beverly hills from 1969 to late 1971 and again in 1973. My children Jamie, Marcus and Katrina attended the school from approximately 1976 until 1982 when we moved to Cannons Creek on Western Port Bay where I still live. We all have many happy memories of the school. I believe there were about 1000 chidren attending the school at that time. Mr Kimber was the principal when my children were at the school. In particular I remember Mrs Jarman who taught all of my children in Preps. Best wishes with your celebrations.
I like this fete
happy 50th birthday bhps
ok thankyou for inviting us bye bye
I was excited to be back and see everything was all so much like when I left in 2004. So many memories in the most random places.
It was strange to see some of the old teachers were here and to see people i used to know. I found it strange that the library changed buildings as well as Mrs Manners moving from her favourite classroom! It was great to be back and the fete was good fun! :
and we miss you Mr. Corr!
This was such a good idea! It was really interesting to see how none of the teachers have changed! Ecpecially Mrs. L who still doesn't have her ears pierced! :) And the fact that Mrs. Manners is still here really surprised me.
Thank you for being an absolutely amazing school :)
I hope all PCs in The Senior lab are still on so people can leave comments :)
In all honesty you have a great school, with great teachers.
Hey good luck for another 50 years, If I am around I promise I will visit.
On Tuesday 28th April the students at Beverley Hills celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the school. Beverley Hills was the first non-rural school to be built in the Doncaster East area. It serviced a new estate (Beverley Hills) and grew quickly to a school of 1000 students. Today the school numbers are much smaller but it still serves a large catchment area bordered by Blackburn Road, Doncaster Road, Wetherby Road and the Eastern Freeway.
The celebration on Tuesday was for the current students. On November 14th there will be a ‘Back to Beverley Hills’ for past students, staff and parents. As well as the ‘Back to’ celebrations there will be a Monster Fete on this day.
