A REUNION dinner, giant fair, and the burying of a time capsule will be highlights of the Bonnells Bay Public School's centenary celebrations next month.
The celebrations will begin on Friday, June 1, when the school takes a trip back in time.
The school's centenary spokesperson Julie Haworth said Colonial Day would give pupils and staff a taste of yesteryear.
"The children and staff will dress up for the day, and take part in activities and games from that era organised by the teachers," Ms Haworth said.
Principal Mark Stiller might even don a principal's cape and cane for the occasion.
A time capsule will be buried at the school as part of a formal assembly.
On the Friday night, Wangi Workers Club will be the venue for a school centenary dinner from 6pm.
"The invitation is extended to all who have had an affiliation with Bonnells Bay Public School over the last 100 years," Ms Haworth said.
That includes past and present teachers, staff, pupils, sports coaches, bus drivers, and parents, she said. Diners must be aged 18 or older. Book on 4973 1149.
On Saturday, June 2, the school oval will host the Centenary Fair and Car Boot Sale from 9am to 2pm. There will be amusement rides, show bags, and entertainment.
