Time Cap­sule

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

IT seems as though noth­ing has changed in the past 25 years after read­ing the head­lines of the Courier Mail dated May 2, 1992 found in the time cap­sule buried after the 100th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of the Biggenden State School. Th­ese head­lines in­cluded US Army Alert Called, How the mighty ma­roons am­bush the south­ern­ers and ex­tra bank charges on credit cards.

The Biggenden Weekly pub­lished an eight-page fea­ture in­clud­ing the school’s his­tory. This edi­tion ad­ver­tised SPC Baked Beans for 70 cents a tin and Weet-Bix $2.85 for a kg packet while Pauls Milk had a flavoured milk called Bronco Ba­nana.

In sport, seven of the War­riors play­ers had been se­lected in North­ern Dis­tricts Rugby teams to play at Gin Gin. Widgee Wild­cats won the in­au­gu­ral women’s seven-a-side com­pe­ti­tion against Brookie’s Bash­ers that in­cluded Lyn Brook, Kris­tine Rollinson, Chris­tine Aberdein and Liz Vi­cary. There was a book of sto­ries by Joy Sum­mers’ Year 6/7 class, school uni­forms, coins, stu­dents work and let­ters from then prin­ci­pal and school cap­tain to to­day’s.
