Somebody wrote on the Maroubra Bay High School Reunion Website ……._Attending a co-educational school, with girls in it, was a real eye opener.
I must admit that those times, standing around with your group, in the playground of Heartbreak High ( before the site was used as the setting for Heartbreak High,) was also a learning experience.

But, in those years, it was these girls (captured by my starflash camera, in 1961) whose birthday parties I attended.
Where are they now?
You’d be surprised how, half a century later, so many things that fellow MBHS students said and did are remembered, like it was yesterday!
