Brookfield State School began as a Provisional School that operated from 1871 in a community-built hall on the site of the present Brookfield Uniting Church. The vested Brookfield State School was opened in Boscombe Road in 1874 and also served Upper Brookfield and Kenmore. As a rural school it qualified for a teacher’s residence. Around the turn of last century the headmaster was also expected to handle mail. The present school has about 500 students and a reputation for high achievement.
