Welcome to the Richmond page.

The Richmond Branch was formed on the 1st November 1971 and was the seventh branch established in Queensland. The inaugural office bearers were: Mrs Pearl Logan, President; Mrs Joyce Murray, Secretary & Mrs Beverly Norton, Treasurer.

We are pleased to note that some families of the original branch members are still involved in the Richmond Branch today.

Over the past 32 years several branch members have been elected to State Council:

  • Mrs June-Mary Mott
  • Mrs Carmel Chalmers
  • Mr Garth Power
  • Mrs Karolee Wolcott
  • Mrs June Kuhl.

Branch Life Memberships have been presented to:

  • Lady Pearl Logan
  • Mrs June-Mary Mott.

Branch Certificates of Appreciation have been presented to:

  • Mrs Carmel Chalmers
  • Mrs Jane Carter
  • Mrs June Kuhl.

In the history of the Richmond Shire there have been five schools:

  • Richmond State School [became a High Top in 1964 and remains a P-10 school],
  • Richmond Convent [closed 1972],
  • Maxwelton State School [closed 1988],
  • Nonda State School [closed 1972],
  • Woolgar State School [1901-1912].

Students unable to access these schools have studied by Distance Education [initially the Primary Correspondence School and now through both Mt Isa and Charters Towers SDE's] and those continuing to Senior Secondary have used boarding schools and private board to meet their educational needs. The Branch's other issues of concern are: small schools, distance education, boarding schools, allowances, travel, teacher education, information technology,VISE and PCAP.
