Milton State School History And Fair

The Milton State School was established in 1889 in a small timber structure in an area known as 'Red Jacket Swamp'. The number of students grew quickly and the one room classroom and headmasters room was added onto with another classroom.

In 1929, in order to create employment and stimulate the economy during The Great Depression, the Queensland Government created a program to build brick state school buildings. The Milton State School building came under this initiative and the two-storey building with 20 classrooms was completed in 1938.

In 1937 the Minister for Public Instruction sates "new Milton State School would stand for the next century or more, and would add to the wealth and comfort of the district, State and Commonwealth." The Minister was correct and the school still stands today after its inception 126 years ago.

On October 17 2015 you can join the school and local community at Milton State School's annual Fair On The Green. This is a great day out for all with stalls, food, rides, performances, fireworks and a silent auction with prizes like a signed Broncos Jersey.

The Fair is held at Gregory Park in Milton and you can stay up to date by following their Facebook page.
