   PHOTOS 2      

(1960 onwards) 


Similarly to the previous "Photos" page, 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: gazzcazz@hotmail.com  





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


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