On Monday 24 January, 1983, Browns Plains State School opened its door with 249 students, 13 classroom teachers, 1 librarian, a part time physical education teacher and a pre-school teacher. The first principal was Dave Gray.
Our school was once considered remote; but now, we are part of a spreading metropolis with highways, main roads and expanding housing estates surrounding us. Today there are four prep classes in new facilities with enrolments being sought twelve months ahead. We have a designated STEM and digital technology block and are the Cluster Schools STEM leader. We also have a music block and instrumental program with a wide variety of instruments taught and played. Our tuckshop facility was constructed after the school's opening and operates four days a week. The library was doubled in size many years ago with a computer laboratory and a meeting room added to the library building. In 2012 the School Hall was completed and officially opened. An Out of School Hours Care Program operates before and after school on week days and during vacation periods.
Enrolments are now around 600 students from prep to year 6. There are over 50 teachers on staff, including a Science Teacher, STEM teacher, specialist LOTE, physical education, music and EIP teachers (Inclusion Program), a guidance officer and other support staff. Our current principal is Mrs Rosemaree Caswell.
