Centenary Celebrations

Bohlevale State School’s Centenary Celebrations were held on the weekend of 18/19 November 2011. It was a momentous and historic occasion.
The 1971 time capsule was opened and is now on display in the administration building.
The photos below display the items that were placed in the capsule in 1971.

The major initiative to celebrate 100 years of Bohlevale State School was a commemorative paved piazza area. This involved families, staff and community members purchasing their own engraved paver (either single, double or hand-drawn), to recognise their connection to Bohlevale State School.
