Reunion celebrates 125 years
AFTER 125 years, the historic building and site at Ingoldsby is a relic of a bygone era in the Lockyer Valley.
To celebrate the occasion on Saturday, past pupils, staff and the greater community gathered to eat cake and reminisce on the good old days.
One of the event organisers, Jim O'Keeffe, said they had a great attendance with donations made and raffles held to contribute to the preservation of the old school house and land it sits on.
The school originally opened in 1886 and closed in 1974.
Current renters of the building are Rose and Roger Goltz and have taken on the roll as caretakers of the State Government-owned (DERM) land.
