School: We kids went to Ironside Primary School , St Lucia, St Aidan’s Girls school, Corinda,(Jen) and Brisbane Boys College, Toowoong.( The boys)

Indooroopilly State School: Opened in 1870, and the brick building opened around 1930. William Alexander Wilson, who owned property in St Lucia early on, married a Miss Ironside, giving clue to the name. Sugar cane used to be grown in the area, which was imported from St Lucia , West Indies. Mr. Wilson was born in St Lucia, hence the suburb was named for his birthplace. Today’s St Lucia Golf club house was originally the home of a Mr. Dart of the St. Lucia Sugar Mill.
