Everton Park High Turns 60!

A monthly update from the Enoggera & Districts Historical Society Inc

The Society would like to send a special ‘shout out’ this month to the wonderful Everton Park State High School – which turns 60 years young in 2021!

The school was originally gazetted in September 1960 as the Stafford State High School. It was renamed in December that year to Everton Park State High School and opened to students – at its location on Stafford Road – on 23 January 1961.

Over the years, the school has been home to some notable students, including Oscar winner and former Australian of the Year, Geoffrey Rush, rugby league identities Paul Vautin and Adrian Lam, professional squash players Michelle and Rodney Martin, and former bass player with the Masters Apprentices and John Farnham manager, Glenn Wheatley.

On Saturday 31st July, the school will have its official 60th anniversary celebrations with a Market Day from 10am to 1pm and a gala evening in the Performing Arts Centre from 6pm. For enquiries, please call 3354 0222 or email sgall129@eq.edu.au

Well done, Everton Park High on all you do to ‘Create Bright Futures’!

Do we have any past students, teachers or support staff out there who have memories of their time at Everton Park State High School? We’d love to hear from you. Please visit our Facebook page ( just search, Enoggera Districts Historical Society) or email enoggerahistory@gmail.com 

Even feel free to drop in to our premises at the Enoggera Memorial Hall any Thursday morning from 9.30am to 1pm to pass on your recollections to our volunteers. 

We also have our local history display open for public viewing at this time each week.

Take care, everyone.

Andrew McMicking, President
