PBC is turning 50 in 2022!

PBC is turning 50 and we are looking forward to celebrating with you. We recently requested anyone with a connection to PBC complete a survey to allow us to determine how you would like to celebrate. It is wonderful to receive great feedback from so many enthusiastic PBC Reds. 

Celebration Ev​​​ents 

At this stage, we have a number of celebration events planned for next year: 

  • PBC Reds Sports Dinner – 5 March 2022 – 6:30pm
    • Celebrating the half century of Reds sporting achievements, this event will include a delicious dinner prepared and served by current hospitality students, guest speakers, ultimate athlete lists and lots of fun. 
  • PBC Open Day – 11 June 2022 –12 Midday to 6:00pm
    • The Open Day will have various displays from every decade, displays of current subjects showing what students today are learning and we will also have student performances, art work, food trucks and other fun activities on offer. Participants will be able to go on a self-guided tour through the school and see how it has grown. It will be a day for the family. 
  • PBC Celebration Gala Dinner – 11 June 2022 – 6:30pm
    • Following on from the Open Day will be a Celebration Dinner starting with optional guided tours through the school before a delicious dinner prepared and served by current hospitality students. The night will feature many guest speakers, alumni and current student performances, videos and many memories discussed. 
  • PBC Academic and Arts Dinner – 3 September 2022 – 6:30pm
    • Celebrating 50 years of amazing academic and artistic achievements. This event is sure to be an entertaining night with arts and academic alumni invited back to reminisce, listen to guest speakers, art displays, alumni and current student performances while enjoying a delicious meal prepared and served by our own hospitality students. 


PBC supporters will be able to order an awesome PBC 50 Years Supporters Polo Shirt and Jersey. The designs are inspired by a retro PBC sports uniform, it's red and white and features both the old and new PBC logos. These will be available for purchase via an online order link before the end of the month. Payment will be required up front and delivery is expected in February 2022. We will email the order link as soon as it's available plus share it on our socials and website. 

There will also be a variety of PBC 50 Years merchandise available to purchase at each event so everyone can walk away with something marking our 50 years. 

Can you h​​​elp?… 

  • We are looking to collect as much PBC memorabilia as we can from all the decades PBC has been open. If you have any old uniforms, awards, trophies, photos or any other school related items that you can loan us please get in contact by emailing Heidi Wallace on or calling 07 5525 9312. All items loaned will be carefully catalogued, protected and stored securely and then returned after the open day. If you can help, please get in contact. We already have all the Yearbook's on file. 
  • If you would like to help with the organisation of the Open Day, we are putting together committees to represent each decade. Those committees will be in charge of sourcing and displaying items from their allocated decade at the Open Day. If this appeals to you, please email Heidi Wallace on
  • We would like to produce a PBC – 50 Years memorial magazine that will cover off the last 50 years of PBC action. If you are a graphic designer and would like to help with this please email Heidi Wallace on or 07 5525 9312. 

Thank you again for supporting PBC's 50th birthday. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at one or all of our fabulous events.
