The true spirit of Brighton State School will be on show, when the school celebrates its centenary next year. If you or your friends and family went to Brighton State School, they would love to hear from you.
The school opened on 27 January 1920, with an enrolment of 31 pupils and Mr Alfred Thompson as principal.
One hundred years later, the North Road primary school has grown to 450 students and principal, Scott Padgett, is encouraging the whole community to get involved in this special event.
“ What a century this has been for Brighton State School. Brighton State School has weathered many storms over the past 100 years and has joined ours and other communities in countless celebrations,’’ he said.
“I congratulate our past and present school community and join with all in wishing even greater things over the next 100 years.’’
As part of the celebrations, an open morning will be held at the school on Friday 15 May, 2020 and a family picnic day on Saturday 16 May 2020.
The Centenary Committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 5.30pm in the school library and all contributions are welcome.
