HIS­TORY of Gayn­dah State School’s 150 years will be show­cased in a lim­ited edition book.

The hard­cover book is be­ing com­piled to cel­e­brate next year’s 150th an­niver­sary of the school, and will fea­ture a page for each year’s school pho­tos as well as a syn­op­sis of that year.

Prin­ci­pal Ken Nichols said he was look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a com­pre­hen­sive chron­i­cle of the school’s past.

“It will be amaz­ing,” Mr Nichols said.

“It is filled with pho­tos and in­for­ma­tion from our archives.”

Head of Cur­ricu­lum Leah Trott said the school was in the process of gath­er­ing all its his­tory.

She said only 450 copies would be printed, and the school would take pre-or­ders.

“We have the op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to pre-or­der, and they will re­ceive their own per­son­alised page in the book,” she said.

The book will be launched on the same date as the school’s 150th an­niver­sary on Oc­to­ber 12, 2013.
