About Pozieres State School

The Pozieres District is part of Queensland�s Granite Belt and is well known for its production of deciduous fruits and summer vegetables. This was not so 60 years ago, as there were few farms and in its virgin state, the thick bush country was poor grazing. Most of the land belonged to large cattle runs and the country was considered of little use to man or beast. Stringy-bark trees were in good supply and many fine logs were hauled out by bullock wagon. It then became established that these granite soils and an altitude of over 1000m were suitable for temperate horticulture. Following the Great War of 1914-18, it was decided by the government, to establish a soldier settlement in the area between Cottonvale and a point now known as Amiens. A railway was laid in 1920 and the sidings were named to commemorate battles in France, in which many Australian soldiers were killed or wounded. On such siding was the name POZIERES Some years ago, the citizens of Pozieres in France presented to us, a casket of earth, gathered from the battlegrounds. It is now held at the RSL in Stanthorpe, in sacred memory of those who lost their lives long ago.
