The plaque commemorates the 75th Anniversary of Brisbane State High School.

In 1921 the school was to occupy the well known Normal School buildings on the corner of Adelaide and Edward Streets. At about this stage it was separated from the control of the Central Technical College and combined with the Junior High School which had been operating as a secondary department at the Normal School. The name Brisbane State High School was then first applied. It was relocated to its current campus next to Musgrave Park at South Brisbane in 1925.
