State High's 100th year celebrations have officially launched!
Today, we held our Centenary Launch celebration on the Kurilpa Roof Terrace, joined by distinguished guests, past students, staff and 2021 student leaders.
Fourth generation State High student, Jade Bartholomeusz (Year 10), spoke of her family's significant history at our school, starting with her great grandmother, Audrey Smith, who graduated in 1931. Jade's grandfather, Everard Bartholomeusz (Class of 1964), father, Mark Bartholomeusz (Class of 1994), and family joined us for this special occasion.

State High's centenary year is an opportunity to reflect on our school's history, progress and look towards its bright future. This is the start of many fantastic events across 2021. We look forward to celebrating with you.
