30th Anniversary Celebrations


Past and present Principals cutting the cake during the celebration.

30th Anniversary Celebration
Thanks everyone for coming along and celebrating 30 years of education at Northview last Friday night. The night was a great success and bringing together past staff, students and parents, as well as current members of our school community.
A big thanks must go to all the parents who helped out in the tuckshop and bar area, in particular Jodie Whitby, Katrina O'Hara, Ashlee Calicetto and
Jess Wark who led the organisation of the night. Thanks also to Northview staff who spent countless hours preparing our school grounds and memorabilia - especially Mr Meinicke, Mrs Murray and Mrs Ross. We were very grateful to have past Principals Wayne Butler, Geoff Gargett and Peter Mandryk in attendance to share their stories and complete the roll call.
The entertainment from our Northview kids and staff was awesome. Thanks Mrs Hamilton, Miss Kay and Miss Benson for preparing "Crash, Boom, Bang"
(drumming group), Concert Band, choir and recorder band. Thanks "Scissors, Paper, Rock" (our school rock band) for rockin' the stage! Thanks also to our staff; Mr Sehl and Miss Benson for lending their vocal talents and per-
forming 1986 hits, and to "Wrong Direction" our staff band for being simply irresistible. And finally, thanks very much to Andrew Obst, Tate Obst and
Jasper Obst for donating their amazing singing and guitar talents to entertain the crowd.
If anyone has any video footage of the various school groups who performed on the night we'd love a copy for our records and the time capsule.

Thank you also to Coates Hire Mackay who donated the light towers for the rides.
