[ED – Title not included]

Dear neighbouring Canberrans,  

Judging by the fact you people have gone to the effort to make a website specifically to disscuss Queanbeyan High, it is obvious you all have an unhealthy obsession I would tend to assume stems from jelously. So, I would like to introduce myself, I am a Queanbeyan girl and I go to Queanbeyan High.

I, unlike some of my peers, don’t feel the need to engage in some sort intellectual battle with you, and will happely spel thinngs rong. : )

Not becasue I don’t know how, or don’t know I would win, but because I simply already have.

See, I live in a town with a great sense identity and pride, and attend a school that I love to wake up to every day. I could tell you about the brilliant student teacher relationships, the interesting and challenging lessons and the fact that we don’t learn much about paragraph structure (in NSW, we learn that at primary school.) BUT, telling you all of these things would take the reason out of this website… and what would happen to your saturday nights?

Oh, and by the way, if your going to trash my message, (considering I’m a young girl I’m sure you’ll be right on to it) make it interesting. : )

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

I know I will… I live in Queanbeyan.

Contrary to popular belief, Queanbeyan isn’t a “bogan town”, and actually isn’t that bad. I work at Coles in Queanbeyan, and on my first day was astounded by the amount of intellects living here. No, that’s not me being sarcastic, it is actually a reality. I can have an intelligent conversation with most anyone that comes through my register. Of course, there are those few that reply to my friendly “hi, how are you?” with a series of grunts, but that is to be expected.

As a year 10 student of queanbeyan high school, I don’t feel that living here gives me any disadvantage. Perhaps I would prefer to live somewhere like Melbourne, but I am not ashamed to be a part of this community. Is that so wrong?

I would also like to add that the inner-city of Canberra is supposed to be one of the most sophisticated areas in the region. Tell me how this can be, when 70% of the housing is from the mid 1970’s, and is now inhabited with drug-f*cked derro’s? Sure, they have the best shopping experience in the ACT, and some of the best Restaurants and clubs, but it doesn’t help the seedy feeling I get even driving through the slums. Old bicycles on the 1m² balconies aren’t all that attractive.

Other areas of Canberra aren’t much better.

Parents spend thousands of dollars to send their children to fancy private schools such as Merici and Dara Malan, when their reputation is almost as bad, if not worse than ours. Do their issues get public advertisement? Queanbeyan high is a government school, and because of this, receives a lot of media attention.

All I have left to say is stand back and look at the bigger picture. Remember – Queanbeyan derro’s will always be Queanbeyan derro’s. Queanbeyan students with intelligence and goals in life will eventually become your doctors and lawyers, government and council. It is a harsh stereotype to assume that because we go to Queanbeyan high that we are any less of people than “youse” are [fck, you think we have grammar problems!]. If you have had no association with the school before, bugger off. Don’t take it on face value – find out for yourself.

Don’t say s*it if you don’t know s*it.

Lol.
Funny thread.
I live in queanbeyan and love it! But it would probably be the best hole-of-a-town to bag out ever!

My grandmother had a young shop assistant come up to her and ask, “Are youse ‘uns alright?”

Amongst other things she taught high school English.

“Wese ‘uns are fine, thank you,” she replied incredulously. Needless to say “youse ‘uns” and “wese ‘uns” have become a much-loved part of our family culture.

Hello there,

I have raised two children that both graduated from Queanbeyan High. They are both currently studying at university. My eldest child is studying medicine at New England, my other child is currently studying law at Armidale.
So just think maybe next time one of you’re Canberra junkies has an overdose, my son might just be the one saving their life or when you get pulled over for driving under the influence, my daughter might just be the one serving you in court.

And use can just think where they came, from good old Queanbeyan High.

You can tell Joshwa and Shazza that we are all happier knowing that they have left Queanbeyan to succeed in the real world. This could be a great opportunity to start a new family business, Joshwa can fix you up after a scuffle at the Royal and Shazza can defend you in the morning at the courthouse. Sounds like you guys could corner the market as this is a service not available in Canberra (the Big Smoke), but we probably dont need it here.

They do Cert III’s in Medicine and Law at Armidale tech now?

Times change, I guess…

That’s a very good post, Alexandra.

Dear neighbouring Canberrans

*guffaw*

Unaccustomed as I am to making speeches ….

I reckon it’s a gee up. I grew up in QBN, and it just doesn’t smell right (ie like bull$hit).

This thread was funny for a bit, but we need some newer material.

Granny Granny 6:56 pm 27 Aug 08

It could be worse in many ways, Overheard. Weren’t you supposed to be discussing offal?

Overheard Overheard 6:38 pm 27 Aug 08

Awwwwwwww!

Could be worse, I suppose: could be a three nut post bag…

Granny Granny 6:37 pm 27 Aug 08

You are a very lovable three post nutbag!

: )

Overheard Overheard 6:35 pm 27 Aug 08

*An old and rather wanky literary device*

THREE POST NUTBAG!

Overheard Overheard 6:34 pm 27 Aug 08

Confusion coming from this bit, I suspect: “he says at…”

An old and rather literary device: talking of oneself in the third person.

‘Scuse I!

Overheard Overheard 6:32 pm 27 Aug 08

That’s my point, Granny. I’m poster #44 (and #46 now!) so the original poster has managed to stir up 43 responses before I took up my e-quill and ink, and therefore got what they probably wanted: a bit of spit and vitriol, if my first possibility were correct.

Granny Granny 6:29 pm 27 Aug 08

#44? Er … Overheard … that was your post!

; )

Overheard Overheard 6:19 pm 27 Aug 08

Two possibilities here:

1. It was posted by a sh!t-stirrer, in which case, he says at post #44, (s)he’s achieved the initial aim and said sh!t has been well and truly stirred, or

2. It was on the up and up, in which case I hope everyone’s had fun stomping the living bejaysus out of a far, far, far too easy target. Feel good? Silly question.

Struggletown-bashing is right up there with blonde jokes and heroin for being so passé.

(Never lived there; driven through it several thousand times.)

Yep, Monster, I think ‘Shanaye’ sounds like the ‘Breeanna, Jaydyn’ type name a junior SES Commonwealth public servant living in Bruce would think up and apply for fun …
