NAVAL Association members at the former Blackstone State School are moving out after losing a fight against eviction by the Queensland Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE).
Bundamba Sub-Section president Ron Baker said tenants were asked to hand over the keys to the heritage-listed buildings.
"DETE wanted us to vacate the place by (Wednesday)," Mr Baker said.
"We've got it all packed up.
"I've got a stay of execution till Monday at 9am."
The association will be operating out of the Goodna RSL function centre.
"We're still going to be providing counsellors for veterans," Mr Baker said.
He said the Blackstone school buildings would go to "rack and ruin" with no one on site to look after them.
Ipswich Genealogical Society, another tenant at the school, was also made homeless last week by DETE after previously being tossed out of the old Ipswich TAFE building on Ellenborough St.
DETE plans to sell both properties.
