Almost 100 ex Parkes High School students and their partners will be returning this weekend to celebrate 40 years since leaving school.
The former students attended the High School between the years 1973-1978.
Social drinks and an informal get together will take place from 7pm tonight at the Royal Hotel.
The main function will be held at the Parkes Bowling and Sports Club from 5 pm on Saturday. The “roll” will be called at 6pm. There will be a memorabilia display with photos and old school uniforms and music from the 70’s.
A brunch and farewell will follow at Lions Park from 10 am on Sunday.
Ex-students will be travelling from overseas, interstate and locally to renew old friendships. For some, this will be the third, as the inaugural reunion was held in 1999 with a smaller get together held as part the Parkes High School 75th Anniversary Celebrations in 2006.
