Humpybong State School is calling on past staff and students who have an inspirational story to share to become part of our Hall of Fame Project.
We are proud of our educational history and of the contribution that Humpybong State School has made for the community of the Peninsula since 1876.
The first Humpy Bong School was opened on February 1 1876 on a site in Elizabeth Avenue near Duffield Road. A new school close to the original site subsequently replaced this school in 1878. This school continued in use until December 1908 when it closed along with the old Redcliffe Provisional School. Humpybong State School reopened on the present site in Ernest Street in March 1909, with children from the Humpy Bong and Redcliffe Provisional Schools. In 1959 the Humpybong State School for Infants was established with Preschool, Year 1 and Year 2 children from Humpybong State School forming the nucleus. Humpybong State (Primary) School catered for children from Year 3 to Year 7 until both schools combined in 1998. In 2001, Humpybong State School celebrated 125 years of quality education.
The Hall of Fame Project is designed to identify past staff and students who have made a renowned or significant impact within their chosen field after completing their education.
Identifying the 'foundation class' of Humpybong State School would also be a key feature of this project. If you are a descendant of a foundation student, we would love to hear your story and see memorabilia from the history of the school.
