In 2012, Ravenshoe State School turns 100 years old. To celebrate this historic milestone, a committee has been formed to plan and organise a number of events that will both honour and celebrate our history.
The Centenary Celebrations will be held on Friday 12th, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October in conjunction with the Torimba Festival
Ravenshoe State School began as a Provisional School in February 1912, and was officially declared a State School in 1914. The opening of a school in a remote area, such a Ravenshoe, was a sign of prosperity and promised of better times ahead.
As we celebrate this milestone, we must remember the surrounding schools, most closed many years ago, but they are still part of our history. These schools are:
Chilverton (July 1916 to July 1956)
Geraldton Road (April 1917 to January 1966)
Horseshoe Bend (Feb 1918 to 1952; Opened and closed several times during this period)
Tumoulin (1912 to Sept 1960)
Vine Creek (Sept 1936 to Aug 1945)
Evelyn Scrub (Oct 1895 to Aug 1946)
Kaban (1925 to 1926)
We wish to invite all past students to Celebrate with us in 2012. Please send your contact details by completing the ‘Past Student Contact Form’ and we will add you to our mailing list.
