History

In 2013, Mount Alford State School celebrated its 125th anniversary of the school opening. From our humble beginnings in 1888 to now, Mount Alford has always been celebrated, honoured and fondly remembered.

On the 4th of April, 1888, Mary Cavenagh gazed across the peaceful valley from her vantage point on the new constructed seven foot verandah of the school. Answering ‘present miss’ to the roll call, a small group of students became the first pupils of the school. Since then, many students have attended and graduated through the gates of Mount Alford State School. 

Numerous things have changed throughout the history of the school. The school has seen the adoption of new uniform colours and designs, from early white and mauve, to the current, modern bottle green and gold. The teaching block construction and alterations continued throughout the years, and beautification of the school grounds was always maintained. 

Throughout  it's existence, Mount Alford State School has participated in many different events, groups, competitions, celebrations and commemorations.  Some notable events and groups include; Fancy Dress and Miss Wintertime Balls, Junior Red Cross groups that supported the Armed Forces, celebration of Arbor Day, and Project Clubs.
