Welcome to our class website.
In the early sixties we stretched our wings and set out, with hope, ambition, and boundless energy. Decades of work, further education, pitfalls and triumphs, joys and losses have made us who we are today.
Wow, how the world has changed! Maybe we have all changed a bit.
Those who knew us at the beginning can understand, celebrate, share and encourage us as the journey continues.
The class includes everyone who was at CHHS in 1st Yr 1960; or 2nd Yr 1961; or 3rd Yr 1962; or 4th Yr 1963; or 5th Yr 1964.
If you were with us for any or all of these years/classes, you are one of us. If you are a family member of a classmate, you also are welcome.
Our next event is at Port Macquarie in October. See the Events page.

Extracts From Previous Updates
It was great to see so many people at our 55th Anniversary.
Thankyou, Geoff Maunder, for the pictures. Thanks to everyone for your enthusiastic participation.
Special mention to Suzanne, Dawn, and Carolyn, our great Class Supporters who couldn't be there. Health issues prevented a number of people from attending. We were thinking of you. And numerous travellers didn't make it, but we hope to see you next time.
Donation to the School
Ann Jeffrey and Jim Gallacher visited the school and made a donation of $1075-00, which you had donated as a goodwill gesture following our 2014 reunion. Principal Patty Kearns was most appreciative of the donation. It is being used to provide a new honour board for the Sport Awards (old one full) as well as 3 x $100 scholarships for needy students in Year 8 to attend a Class Camp.
From 2014: Jim G.
I sincerely thank everyone for attending and for the manner in which you all became involved. I may have co-ordinated it, but you ALL made the weekend such an enjoyable and amazing experience.
I make special mention of Ian “Puff” McGrath (for his Bagpipe bracket) and Margaret and Colin Gill for the singing. Both brought the house down and left us all a bit “gob smacked”.
Sadly our numbers are thinning and some are mentioned on the Memorials Page
