Brief History of Blackbutt State School

Blackbutt State School first opened 20 January 1896. It was erected on Crows Nest Road, half a kilometre from a town known then as Little Belguim.  The school served also as a Post Office for the receipt and issue of mail.

Enrolment figures in 1912 show there were 109 students representing 54 families.  A new school was built to accommodate 120 children in Crofton Street.  The old school and play-shed was purchased by W.E. Houston. An influenza epidemic was responsible for the closure of the school for a short period in 1919. 

In 1986 a pre-School was established-this is now been converted to a Prep classroom. 

In 1987 the swimming pool was built at the school. The library and school hall were built in 1994.
