Moorooka State School celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2004. The celebrations saw several of the original students (1929er’s) attend functions throughout the year. The events included 1st Day Bell Ringing, ANZAC ceremony and a function for each decade of past students.
A 75th Anniversary Book was collated for the Jubilee and is available from the school. This book was written as a continuation of the 50th Jubilee Book (1929-1989, A History of the District and the School).
Moorooka State School has a rich history as can be read in the following information.
In December 2006 the Junior School was ravaged by fire. The whole block had to be demolished due to the risk created by the asbestos in the roof. The loss included seven classrooms. the Uniform Shop/Tuckshop, Junior Administration Offices, Staffroom, Reading Resource Room and Maths Resource Room.
In March 2009 with the aid of Insurance money from the fire and other State and Federal Grants we opened the new Moorooka State School Multi-purpose Hall. THe Hall includes a new Tuckshop, 2 classrooms, Uniform Shop, Toilets and room for OHSC. A great way to commemorate our 80th Year.
