Student Heritage Group
Who are we?
We are group of current students at Hurlstone, leading
a wider team of students on several projects aimed at preserving school history.
Our aim is to immerse students at Hurlstone into the history of the school and ensure there exist
structures to engage new students in Hurlstone history and ensure those who leave feel a sense of
belonging in being a part of that history.

publish Alumni and / or past year group activities.

contain a combination of text and photo describing the area / building, detailing its history and
significance to the Hurlstone community.

the locations visited during the walk. Click here for the self-guided history tour (PDF format 173KB)
An outline and display of our project was available at the Student Heritage Group stand at last year's
annual country fair. We are particularly hoping that some of our former students would be willing to sponsor the plaques which are to be placed on the heritage walk.
The following plaques have already been prepared:
