5 December 2019 

Fifty years ago, in 1969, our community was busy establishing new schools, community groups, sports clubs and more. As a result, this year has seen many local schools, clubs, community groups and organisations celebrate their 50th birthdays. 

The 1960s was a time of growth for Manningham with many young families moving into the area. Then in 1967 the Shire of Doncaster and Templestowe was officially proclaimed a City.

Some of the 50th celebrations our Mayor has been part of this year include:

  • Aquarena Aquatic and Leisure Centre
  • Bulleen Boomers, Bulleen-Templestowe Basketball Club
  • Bulleen Templestowe Cricket Club
  • Doncare
  • Doncaster Secondary College
  • Onemda
  • Park Orchards Sharks Football Club
  • Templestowe Junior Football Club
  • Templestowe Valley Primary School
  • Yarraleen Cricket Club

Fifty years is an incredible milestone and certainly one to celebrate. Congratulations to all Manningham groups celebrating their 50th in 2019.

We’re always looking to help celebrate community milestones and achievements in Manningham Matters. If your club, community organisation or group has a milestone coming up, let us know.
