Celebrating 50 years
Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) is celebrating 50 years of supporting choice and diversity.
Since the first meeting of the association in 1968, the organisation has remained committed to promoting, supporting and developing independent schooling in Queensland.
Throughout 2018, ISQ will celebrate the achievements of the sector and reflect on the organisation’s contribution to independent schooling.
Did you know?
The first meeting of the association was held on 18 July 1968 at Brisbane Grammar School, with representatives from 27 schools attending.
To mark ISQ’s 50-year milestone, the 2018 AGM and Dinner will be held on the same date (18 July), and in the same location (Brisbane Grammar School) as the inaugural meeting of our membership association. If you would like to attend the AGM and/or the 50-year celebratory dinner, register now.
Share in the celebration
ISQ invites member schools to share their stories of outstanding/interesting alumni, former staff, old school pictures or stories of your school’s interaction with ISQ. These memories will be considered for incorporation into a commemorative publication and microsite.
Member schools can email their stories and contribution throughout the year. Contributions for the commemorative publication will need to be received by 30 March 2018.
