The school celebrated the Centenary of the Gallipoli campaign with an exceptional presentation from year 9 World History to a large audience of ex students and the school. Students showed the perspectives of Australian and Turkish soldiers using visuals and materials researches from The Australian War Memorial Archives.

Year 9 presenters spoke without notes, and their relationship with their audience was electrifying. Of note was the perspective of an Australian medical doctor at the front on the campaign. The school concert band and choir presented the tradition music associated with Anzac Day, and student Ethan Oo played The Last Post and Reveille.

The school archive is housed in the Library in the Bob Booth Archive Room, and contains papers,  artefacts and memorabilia from the three sites of the school; Ultimo, Paddington and Bexley from staff and students. The archive has the most complete set of research files relating to Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, an Old Boy of the school, in Australia. The research files were most recently used by Peter Fitzsimmonds for his book on Kingsford  Smith, ‘Charles Kingsford Smith and Those Magnificent Men’, published in 2010.

In 2011 the archive was renovated for the school Centenary Celebrations and was extensively used by Dr John Morrison in his history of the school,’ The Story and Times of Sydney Technical High School, 1911-2011’ published in 2011 to celebrate one hundred years of school history. Alumni can access the school archives on Wednesday afternoon. Please phone the school.
