Yeronga State High Schools History:

The school opened 25 January 1960 with a Principal, 12 staff and a first year enrolment of 217 students. The original buildings were A block and Manual Training and as student numbers grew, Home Economics, E and F blocks were built in 1961, G block in 1963, I block in 1968, the Library and J block in 1969, the Auditorium in 1970, and lastly the Cultural Centre in 1979. Student numbers increased to 1,821 in 1971 with 93 teachers. At this stage Acacia Ridge and Holland Park High Schools were opened and Yeronga's numbers started to decrease until the present time when approximately 450 students are enrolled.
