Rainbow & District Secondary Education Centenary 1919-2019

When: Friday, November 1, 2019 to Monday, November 4, 2019.

Many of you will already be well aware that a special Committee has been hard at work doing the hard yards needed to make the November 1-4 2019 grand Rainbow Schools Centenary reunion celebrations a reality. 

Much of the organisational spadework has now been completed, and the crucial next stage requires your assistance and support.


Whilst we have extensive files with addresses, phone numbers and contact details for former RHS staff and students from our 1985 and 2009 “Back To” events, much updating remains to be done, as we are keen to contact as many people as possible.

At the same time, because the 2019 celebration embraces alldistrict Secondary Education, that means we want to include people who attended those numerous small surrounding schools too, all of which offered at some stage secondary schooling in Grades 7 & 8.

It is financially impossible for us to mail everyone and these days telephone/text/email/facebook etc offer more efficient communications means anyway.


So,  this is how you can help us in this quest – 

1.     Contact Chairperson – Murray Robinson on 0429 022739 or Secretary/Treasurer Pam Newton on 0429 951392 or on our email address – rainbowonehundred@g,  or to PO Box 2, Rainbow Vic 3424,   with your updated details and if you plan to attend.

2.     Let Murray or Pam know of any other useful details about classmates, siblings, colleagues etc and their intentions which will make our data base more accurate.

3.     Spread the word among your former classmates, and get them to also get in touch with Murray or Pam especially if they intend to come.


By helping in this way, you will enable our Committee to fine-tune arrangements especially for catering and timing of events.

It would be great if the bulk of this feedback can be completed before Christmas.

The planned 4 day Centenary at this stage is shown on the attached poster, and as was the case in previous years, an “Early Bird” cost allows a discount if your payment is made before April 30th2019.


The “Early Bird” rate is $80 per adult, $20 student under 18 yrs and this covers 2 BBQ Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 1 Afternoon Tea and complimentary entries to several local venues.  Please note it does not cover any evening meals. Children under 5 – free.

After that date, the corresponding amounts are $100 Adult, $30 Student.

Day rates for people only attending on one particular day will be $40 per day.


Payment can be made by :-

1.     Cheque – to PO Box 2, Rainbow Vic 3424

2.     Direct Deposit to – BSB – 063-737, Account Number – 1004-0236 

3.     Cash to Treasurer – Pam Newton

Many thanks in anticipation of your support for what already promises to be a marvellous get-together.
