Class of 2003 is miss­ing, for­ever?

MONTO’S class of 2003 seems to have dis­ap­peared with­out a trace.

Jenny Kling, edi­tor of a Monto State High School 50-year me­mo­rial mag­a­zine, has searched far and wide for a pic­ture of any class from the year, with­out suc­cess.

“I’ve been through ev­ery cup­board at the high school and found a lot of other things, but not the kids from 2003,” she said.

“I can’t think of any rea­son why there wouldn’t be any!”

Rus­sell Lar­son, who was a stu­dent in the high school’s open­ing year in 1964 has one hy­poth­e­sis.

He thinks around 2003 the schools be­gan tak­ing in­di­vid­ual pho­tos, rather than the tra­di­tional full class or sports team pho­tos.

“But I’m sure one proud mum or dad must have or­gan­ised a pic­ture at some stage,” he said.

De­spite be­ing three weeks be­hind on a pub­lish­ing dead­line, Mrs Kling is still hope­ful pic­tures will sur­face.

“The Face­book page – I sur­vived Monto State High School – is a great way to show the pho­tos, and the com­mu­nity has been great so far help­ing me name ev­ery­one in the pic­tures we have so far,” she said.
