St Norbert College was the talk of radio stations, newspapers, social media outlets and ABC TV when Cafe 135@Treasure, the College canteen, calculated it was about to serve it’s 200,000th cheesie.
The milestone, first mentioned in The West Australian’s Inside Cover column, inspired a return visit to the College by former student Pete Curulli and his 92.9 breakfast radio show co-hosts to witness the occasion, along with photographers and videographers.
The result was several days of talkback as callers reminisced about their school canteen experiences. In the midst of it all, Year 7 student Izumi Carmelia became the surprised winner of the golden ticket, buying the 200,000th cheesie containing a hidden token inside.
