Mackay North State High School院校介绍
The school was opened in January 1964 with an enrolment of 209 students in year eight and nine. Mr. JD Cassidy was the first Principal with a staff of nine teachers. Two buildings, 100 and 400 blocks, were constructed but furniture and tools for woodwork were borrowed. Toilets were of the outdoor variety and there was no school tuckshop for the first four years. The school was opened by Hon. RE Camm MLA, Minister for Mines and main Roads on 23rd September, 1967. In several stages from 1966 until 1985 the present school buildings were gradually added. The school now boasts a First Year Centre, Modern Art, Music, Home Economics and Manual Arts blocks, Community Hall, Performing Arts Block and a twenty-five metre swimming pool.
