Scarborough Senior High School
The class of '69!
20 year old males of this graduating year were
lucky to be just saved from conscription (and Vietnam) by the
election of the Whitlam Government late in 1972. Phew!
Job choices were restricted to Teaching,
Nursing or the Public Service for the non-entrepeneurial. I wonder
how many of the expressed career choices actually eventuated. I know
mine did (ie "Career choice undecided")
Sadly, we have to say Vale to some
69'ers. I am pretty sure we have sadly lost the following; namely:
Dennis Brooks (2003?)
Phil Haynes (d. 26/07/2000),
John Baldock (d. 1994?),
Steve Margaritis (d. 11/09/1993),
and Pat Nesbitt (d. 22/06/1973).
I am reluctant to put names here without
confirmation. Apologies if I have anything wrong.
One 69'er fell foul of the law in 2005 and
spent some time at the Governor's pleasure. I shall leave him
Other than that I have no more gossip.
