Uniforms take step back in time

IN 2010 the girls at Warwick State High School (WSHS) were a bit concerned about the lengths of the uniforms from the 1970s.

So much so Year 10 student Alison Burrill didn’t want to come out at first, then while holding the end of the skirt firmly down she ran across the library announcing, “it’s too short”.

In preparation for the centenary of the school in 2011 the school is eager to collect uniforms from past eras to create a memory lane of uniforms.

Margaret Bryant still had her uniforms safely away in the cupboard from the 1950s which students Jane Gamgee and Lucy Boland wore.

Past student Mary Jackson also donated her old uniforms for show from the 1970s which Alison Burrill and Melanie Hagenbach modelled yesterday.

The four students agreed the uniforms were hot and the two sports uniforms and 1970s formal uniform were a bit uncomfortably short.

WSHS will hold an Expo next week putting their school on show where the uniforms will be displayed.

The event in conjunction with the NRA Championship Points Open Rodeo kicks off at 3.30pm on Thursday, September 16.
