Strathbogie Campus

History

The current Strathbogie campus was Strathbogie Group School prior to becoming part of Peranbin Primary College in 1994.

The original Strathbogie State School was opened in 1879 with 45 pupils on the roll. It was temporarily closed in 1880 due to scarlet fever, and again in 1881 due to an outbreak of whooping cough. The school was originally located nearly 2 kilometres out of the township on the corner of Polly McQuinn’s and Tames Roads. In 1969 it was finally moved to its present location where it became Strathbogie Group School.

Over the years many other schools opened in the area, some being only a few miles apart. They included:

Strathbogie West which was later known as Kithbrook

Kelvin View

Strathbogie South

Strathbogie North East

Strathbogie North, later renamed TooRour

Parent Clubs in Detail

Parent clubs are valuable to the whole school community. They build relationships with community members and organisations for the benefit of students.

Parent clubs may:

  • create links between parents and teachers
  • organise welcome events for new students and parents
  • help with events like second hand book and uniform schemes, or Father’s and Mother’s Day celebrations
  • run fundraising
  • advocate for parent views on school policies
  • promote cultural and social diversity.

They:

  • do not run to make a profit
  • do not benefit any individual member
  • are not part of the school council and do not have formal responsibilities or powers.

Individual members of a parent club may be elected to school council or join a subcommittee.
