Important Curriculum Information:

Dating back from 1859, it is one of the largest surviving woolsheds in Australia and is famous for the shearing of approximately 200,000 sheep in a single season (1873).  The Woolshed has a special place in shearing folklore and in the history of the union movement.  The experience tells the story of the Woolshed itself – its processes, its people, and its role in the Jondaryan community and the history of wool in Australia.

The Woolshed at Jondaryan School Programs are directly linked to the P-10 Curriculum Guidelines for Queensland Schools and cover a broad range of subjects across the various age groups.  The staff endeavour to respond to individual and specific requests for information, resource materials and programs.
