Mr Archibald George Muir
(Archie) was a well-known local
Blackbutt identity who ran a garage business at Blackbutt for many years.
Archie lived at Coulson Street, Blackbutt until his death on
the 12th April, 1993 after a short period of time in the Nanango
Karinya Nursing Home.
Mr Archibald Muir has bequeathed money to be held in trust
to support the young adolescents of Blackbutt with their education.
In 2016, we are delighted to begin The Archie Muir Trust
Bursary for Year 6 students. One of our
year 6 girls and one of our year 6 boys will be selected and given a digital
device to assist with their future high school studies.
From 2016 onwards, each year Mr Muir’s trust fund will purchase two digital devices ie laptop/notebook/tablet to be given to two successful year 6 applicants to help with their future high school studies.
The digital devices will be presented to the selected
applicants at the year 6 graduation dinner on December 6 2016.
All year 6 students
are encouraged to apply by completing the application form-see below.
