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.
