Our School

Our school first began as a public school in 1964 when the O'Brien family of Cameron Downs campaigned to begin a school in the district. The first school building was a corrugated iron two room classroom and joining teachers quarters. There were no lawns or trees as there wasn't the water to irrigate with and no air-conditioning.

The school is located on a working commercial cattle station of some 80000 hectares.

Today the school facilities include:

  • air-conditioned classroom
  • separate library
  • a separate Prep - shed
  • administration building located in the original classroom building
  • a tennis court
  • a Hall Of Fame area for play and recreation
  • a shade covered playground
  • a large undercover area
  • all surrounded by self irrigated lawns and towering trees
