   PHOTOS 1    


1920s to 1959 



In this section ex students and former staff are invited to contribute photographs of their (or family member’s) days at DHS.  These photos will be of immense interest to other former staff and students. Please take the time therefore, to clearly identify the year and form, or other context that might apply to the photo .  These can either be formal class photos, or others from your personal "school days" collection.


Photos should preferably be sent in digital format, ie, via e-mail.  If you only have hard copy photos it would assist if you could arrange to scan them first before e-mailing to the address below:

  Otherwise you can post to Dandenong High School Ex Students Association, P O Box 383 Dandenong, 3175.



Email Address: dhsexstudents@gmail.com




As far as possible photos and "links" are arranged in chronological order.  Simply scroll through to find your years at school.


So as to free up storage space, actual photos are being progressively removed from the page. Therefore, in most instances, you will need to click on the chosen year to open the photo.


If you find an image or text too small, it can be enlarged by simultaneously pressing Ctrl +

For our annual entertainment this year we presented Humperdinck's fairy opera. "Hansel and Gretel." in the Dandenong Town Hall on Thursday and Friday. 28th and 29th June.

It was ambitious for a ' school to attempt such a difficult production. but. inspired by Miss L.Rofe. the producer and musical directress. Pupils and teachers. singers . actors. orchestra, choirs, electricians. scene-shifters, carpenters and scene-painters co-operated enthusiastically to make the two performances a success.

In order not to disappoint the courageous young singers and actors who had volunteered

to take part. Miss Rofe decided that there should be two complete casts of principals.

They were:-

Thursday                                                          Friday

Hansel              Laurence Davis                         Hansel              Janet Hartrup

Gretel               Rosemary McHenry                  Gretel               Mary Whiteside
