History[edit]

In December 1872 a Congregational Church opened on Mr McLean's land. It was 16 by 24 feet (4.9 m × 7.3 m) and built of hardwood.[3]

Belivah Provisional School opened circa 1874 and classes were held in a church. In September 1891 the residents were agitiating to relocate the school to a location closer to where more children lived, but Queensland Government did not wish to pay for a new provisional school.[4] In March 1892 the residents commenced the construction of a new school themselves and the Queensland Government agreed to contribute £37 to complete the building.[5] It was renamed Wolffdene Provisional School. On 1 January 1909 it became Wolffdene State School. It closed in 1935 but re-opened 15 February 1939. It closed permanently on 31 August 1942.[6][7]
