Old Scholars Association badge




At this time this is the only page completed on this site





Above is the old scholars badge which design is based on the present school logo.

These pages are under construction - Read on as we have information set up on this page about us and coming and past activities!

The aim of the Association is to engage with the past alumni of the schools that are part of the history of the Marryatville High School which goes back to 1915 when the upper classes of the Norwood Primary School formed a seperate section under the Primary School headmaster and took over the annex vacated by the Norwood District High School in 1910. In 1940 it became the Norwood Junior Technical School and in 1944 The Norwood Boys Technical School situated at Osmond Terrace. (Refer to the Flow Chart link towards the bottom of the page). Our present membership includes persons who were attending the school in the 1940's.

As part of our remit we endeavour to provide social interaction with past alumni and importantly assist the school of today through fund raising for particular projects and providing prizes for students that excel in a variety of disciplines throughout the school curricular.

We endeavour to provide support for all departments of the school although the music department is significant in having a range of talented students and with many graduates making music a career through their membership of ensembles and orchestras world wide.

SPECIAL EVENT - OUR OWN DIAMOND JUBILEE

This year is the 60th Anniversary of the move by the Norwood Boys Technical School to the Eden park campus. This started in late 1952 and all students were there by mid 1953. The Queen is not the only one having a Diamond Jubilee!

The story of that first year in abreviated form is posted here as a pdf file format - click the link 1953 move to Eden Park

Around 70 old scholars got together on 8th December 2012 to enjoy a great Christmas Luncheon and for those who could remember - celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the move. Those in attendance, some of whom also appeared in the article on the first year at Eden Park included David Buttery, David Hunter, Mario Minuzzo, Richard Fishlock, John Evans, Trevor Hollister, Brian Addison - to name a few. It was a good role up and all in attendance had a great time with the usual fun raffle. Henk Dorrestyn was the lucky winner of the dinner voucher for the Adelaide Casino which was donated for the raffle. Proceeds from the day were added to our funds available for providing prizes to students at the end of the year and any other areas in which the Old Scholars are able to assist the school.

The Annual General Meeting was held on October 17, 2013 at 7.00pm. We are looking for new enthusiastic blood to maintain our momentum. It can be fun so why not join us? Either way please continue your support by becoming or renewing your membership every year. We can then 'move forward' as Obama says!

ALL SCHOOLS RE-UNION 2012- This event was held in April. Those present enjoyed a BBQ lunch prepared on the Associations' mobile BBQ. While the crowd was small and we would like more to come each year we raised signicant funds from our raffle and sales of wine and other refreshments. Here are some pictures from the 2011 re-union with helpers and participants who all stepped up on the day in 2012.

Concert in Adelaide Town Hall - August 2013 which was again attended by the Governor of South Australia. It was great evening of music including a marvellous Big Band item with all the muso's really getting into the swing of things. The final item by the School Orchestra consisted of the final movement of Beethovens 3rd Symphony and a dance from Stravinsky's ballet The Firebird. The orchestra did well with the dificulties of Beethven and the concert finished on a high.
The final event of the year was the annual dinner in Eden Park held December 2013 in the lovely groumds of the campus beautifully maintained by the garden group. here are some pictures of those enjoying the surrounds and a new menu at only $20 each. Make up a party for next years' event.
