Calling all Box Hill High School Alumni!

Box Hill High School Members in 1930

 

Interested in joining the BHHS Alumni or know of any past students who may be interested? To register your details and join, please complete this survey or forward the link. We have some great events coming up next year for the School's 95th anniversary (1930-2025) and, of course, even more planned for the 100th in 2030! We would love to see our Alumni involved in both exciting milestone events.

 

A few memories...

"Overall, it was a very friendly and supportive environment to learn in and develop as an individual." ~ Anastasia, Class of 2011

 

"The early days of 2000/2001 pre expansion when the school was just 400-500 students and it was a very quiet school. Or bludging in the old Music House when it was too cold to practice music." ~ David, Class of 2005

 

"Participating in the whole of school excursions to places such as Yallourn Power Station and Open Cut, Werribee Gorge at Bacchus Marsh and fruit canneries at Shepparton.
