THIS year marks 30 years since Woodvale Primary School opened its classroom doors.

Principal Neil McCallum said during this time, 4244 students had graduated, with many going on to “lead successful lives and work in a variety of fields”.

He said some of the school’s “illustrious alumni” included Beazley medallist Nicole Kerr, tennis champion Casey Dellacqua, AFL player Rohan Bewick, WAFL player Aaron Black, taekwondo Olympian Tina Morgan, soccer star Mitchell Oxborrow, Australian lacrosse players Alana McKinlay and Luke Walton and doctors Craig Connelly and Kira Fellows.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary milestone, the school is hosting a reunion for past students and staff on Sunday, October 29.

To RSVP or contribute photos or memorabilia, email Rebecca Bowman at wps30yearreunion@gmail.com.

The school would also like to hear from anyone who knows where the time capsule has been buried.

“We have had some leads, but no luck as yet,” Mr McCallum said.
