This article provides a download of Acacia: Weston Creek High ’88, the annual Weston Creek High School Magazine published in 1988.

An archival copy of the Acacia: Weston Creek High ’88 magazine is not currently held by the National Library of Australia in their collection of periodicals for Weston Creek High School.

The magazine was produced by Year 9 and 10 Journalism students in the days before digital composition. Each page was laid out on paper by hand – you can even see the tape sticking down the student photos!

I scanned the original copy of my magazine at 600 dpi, applied Optical Character Recognition (OCR), removed all hand written autographs and other noticeable “artefacts”,  and saved the result in Adobe PDF format.

Unfortunately there was a printing problem with the magazine which led to print transfer between some pages, and is particularly noticeable on pages 11, 14 and 15. If anyone is able to provide better copies of these pages, please contact me! 🙂

There are two downloadable versions of the magazine:
