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.
The inaugural meeting of the Association was held on 18 July 1968 at Brisbane Grammar School, with 29 representatives from 27 schools attending. To mark ISQ’s 50-year milestone, the 2018 AGM and Dinner was held on the same date and in the same location as the inaugural formation meeting, with more than 150 people in attendance.
In commemoration of the organisation's 50-year anniversary, Independent Schools Queensland has developed a dedicated interactive website providing an interesting historical perspective. Visit www.isq50.com.
A commemorative book documents the history and achievements of Independent Schools Queensland over the past 50 years and shares stories celebrating the important contribution member schools have made to schooling in the state. Click the link below to read the full story.
