The uniforms may have changed over 150 years, but many of the names on the Panmure Primary School register remain the same.
Started in 1870 with 44 students, the school has withstood floods, fires and visits from range of dignitaries in it's history.
Principal Mark Antonio said a number activities had been planned to help the community celebrate the history of the school.
"On Saturday February 29 we have an open day from 3-5pm, where people are welcome to come through, have a look at all of the memorabilia and reacquaint themselves with the school," he said.
"The school will be open again on Sunday March 1 from 10am-12pm when we will have a cake cutting and a roll-call of former students.
"The current students will sing the Panmure anthem, written by former principal Diede Friebe."
The oldest living Panmure Primary School student Mrs Cath Harney (nee Bouchier) will cut the cake at 11am. Mrs Harney attended the school in 1931.
A sold-out dinner will be held on Saturday night at the Panmure Recreation Reserve.
"Any students who can't make the Saturday night dinner should head to the school on Sunday for the celebrations," Mr Antonio said.
"This school has been a big part of the Panmure community since 1870, and continues to be a big part of the community.
"It's important for us to celebrate this history with the local community.
"This will be a good chance to reflect on how things have changed from the uniforms to the teaching styles and the numbers of kids enrolled in the school.
"It brings back a lot of fond memories for people in this town."
