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. 

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