One hundred years worth of fond memories will be crammed into one book in preparation for Griffith Public School's centenary.
The book will be written by assistant principal Patricia Campbell, who is hunting down old students, teachers, and P&C members so she can record their memories for posterity.
"We do love seeing our old students and seeing what they're up to," Mrs Campbell said.
"We'd also love to hear from past staff, because teaching was radically different in the old days."
It was an era before Facebook, Fortnite, or Five Nights at Freddies, back when teachers rode horses to school and students wrote on chalk slate boards.
Mrs Campbell is also asking old alumni to bring in mementos and photos from the good ol' days so that those keep the memories of that era alive.
Mrs Campbell will be scrambling to get as many old stories and photos as possible into the book before October next year, which is when the school officially turns 100.
She will be selling copies of the book at the centenary celebrations, which already has preparations well underway.
It'll be a nostalgia-fueled trip down memory lane; they'll be digging up a time capsule, getting the old school captains to plant rose bushes, selling memorabilia, and putting up displays, just to name a few.
They'll also be teaching the school's history, which is almost as long as the city of Griffith itself.
It was one of the eight schools dreamed up by the town's founder Walter Burley Griffin, who helped found the school in 1920.
Since then extensions have been built, playing fields were dug, and generations of students have come and gone over the decades.
Mrs Campbell is hoping to alumni from all the different decades so she can get a freeze-frame of how the school has changed.
"Please come forward with your recollections, and dob in a mate to do so as well," Mrs Campbell said.
Those interested in sharing their memories can call Griffith Public on 6962 3199.
