Rochedale State High School

Public School

Rochedale is an outer southern suburb of the City of Brisbane. It is 17 kilometers south-east of the Brisbane central business. Rochedale is a unique suburb being so close to the city centre, having a small population and being a small piece of the country with its farms, hatchery and nurseries, right on the city's doorstep. It is easily accessible to both the South-East Freeway and Gateway Motorways. There are currently no shopping centers in the suburb. Explorers often passed through or near Rochedale during the era of convict settlement from 1824. After free settlement was allowed in 1842, Upper My Gravatt and Beenleigh began to be settled and places like Slacks Creek, Pimpama, Loganlea and Loganholme existed, but Rochedale was still just a part of the area known as Eight Mile Plains. It was not until 1865 that the first settlers started farming the area's rich alluvial soil for farming, vineyards and fruit growing. During the 1960s residential development took off in the area. One local builder, Jack Davey was responsible for some of the new estates off Rochedale Road between Underwood Road and Priestdale Road. Some of the street names are family names such as Rhonda Street and Davey Street. The family lived in the area until the mid 1990s.The population was relatively stable since the early 1990s. The suburb of Rochedale was still mainly populated by a few families on large blocks. These families in some cases were descendants of the original settlers in the area. Land was still bring used mainly for market gardens, nurseries and farms.

Rockhampton Girls Grammar School

Independent School

Not only for school but for life we are learning” is a translation of the Latin motto adopted in 1894 by the Rockhampton Girls Grammar School. The motto reflects the philosophy of Miss Helen E. Downs, the first Headmistress of the School (1892-1906). In 1883 a movement began to establish Girls Grammar school in Rockhampton and with a decision by the Trustees of the Rockhampton Grammar School to close their female department, the Rockhampton Girls Grammar School began to take enrolments. The prime site on the Athelstan Range was selected as being appropriate and in 1890 the School building, designed by E.M. Hockings, was constructed to accommodate 50 day and 20 boarding students. However these were enlarged three times in 1897, 1899 and again in 1901 to meet growing demands as students were enrolled from kindergarten to matriculation. Girls Grammar opened its doors to the first four boarders and thirty-three day students on 11th March, 1892. With Miss Downs as foundation Headmistress, the School was officially opened on 19 April 1892. On the departure of Miss Downs, the School presented her with a gold replica of the School badge, and on her death she bequeathed it to the School to be worn by the Head Prefect who was to be known as the Helen E. Downs Prefect.

Sheldon College

Independent School

Some people might see February 1997 as the birth of Sheldon College. However, I believe Sheldon College had its beginnings some 55 years ago when my father walked out on us. From that day my mother began the task of laying the blueprint for emotional resilience in my brother and me. With no income and as a single parent we moved to a small town called Tambo in south-west Queensland to live with my grandparents. The mission of Sheldon College is to provide a quality educational experience in an environment which encourages and enables our students to succeed in a constantly changing world. Our Student Exit Outcomes ensure our students leave our College equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to become self directed learners, effective communicators and collaborators, creative thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, information and media literate, skilled in the core literacy, and possessing high self esteem.
