THE sun shone on Amberley District State School, as students and families celebrated the school's 150th anniversary.

P and C secretary Jodie Kurtz said current students turned out to mark the milestone.

"Most of the school came along, as well as past students and nearby residents who wanted to show their support for the school; it was fantastic," Ms Kurtz said.

Ms Kurtz said the fete had a mini-Ekka vibe.

"There were heaps of rides and stalls and there were even show bags for sale," she said.

Some of the attractions included class performances, and activities including a bungy challenge and laser gun battle.

The school community had well and truly settled into its new Yamanto location, Ms Kurtz said.

"My son was enrolled to start at the old Amberley school in 2010, but I think the move has made the school even better," she said.

"It's nice and new and it's growing again - I think there are about 600 students.

"We hope it'll enjoy another 150 years here."

The fete ran from 11am to 4pm, narrowly avoiding storms before and after the event.
