Since the middle of last year a Mildura Senior College Centenary Committee has been working tirelessly to organize a wide range of exciting and interesting activities for a major school celebration later this year.
School Principal Andrew Ough said that the Centenary Celebrations will run from Friday September 14 to Sunday September 16 2012.
“The activities have been organized to appeal to a wide cross section of people – current and past students, teachers, parents and community members,” Mr Ough said.
“Throughout the three days of celebrations there will be something for everyone to participate and enjoy.”
Back in the year 1911, the Education Department of Victoria agreed to erect a high school on the Chaffey College site, and Mildura High School was officially opened in September 1912.
The Diamond Jubilee of the school was celebrated on the 8th and 9th September 1972.
"We celebrated our 75th birthday in August 1987 and in 2012 the centenary celebration will be held over the weekend of September 13-16th.;" Mr Ough said.
As part of a strategic plan by the Ministry of Education in 1990, Mildura High School changed its name to Mildura Secondary College to reflect the changing nature of educational delivery in secondary schools.
Again as a result of restructuring in education provision since 1995 the College has been known as Mildura Senior College, catering exclusively for the final two years of secondary education.
The first day of the celebration will be a College Centenary Day followed by a reunion day on Saturday September 15 with a community celebration day on Sunday September 16.
