Ocean View State School 1951

The Brisbane Courier of Thursday 20th April 1922 reported DAYBORO New School Opened On Saturday the Under Secretary for Education, accompanied by Mr. R.J. Warren, M.L.A., and Inspector Gripp (Education Department), visited the district and formally opened the State school, which has just been erected.  The day’s proceedings took the form of a picnic, which was hugely attended.  In addressing the assemblage, Mr. Kennedy complimented the residents on the selection of the school site, which occupies a commanding position, and from which a most magnificent panoramic view is obtained, extending from the Blackall ranges down the coast line, Bribie Island, Moreton Bay, to Brisbane City with its pall of smoke…”

The new school was at Ocean View, not Dayboro.  In September 1920 it was announced that a new state school would be established at Ocean View.  Armstrong Creek State School closed in 1919.  The school building was moved to Ocean View and the new Ocean View State School was opened on 15th April 1922.  It closed in 1963.
