Petrie Terrace State Infants' school (Number 250) opened in June 1953 when the infants' section separated from the Petrie Terrace Girls' and Infants' School. The older girls were moved to the new Petrie Terrace State School. Provision was also made for Opportunity Classes and the Admission Registers for 1953-54 refer to Opportunity classes.

Petrie Terrace Infants' School closed in 1960 and the infants were transferred to Petrie Terrace State School. The decision was taken to establish a separate Opportunity School in place of the exisiting opportunity classes attached to the Infants' School. The new Opportunity School was called initially the Petrie Terrace Opportunity School and later Baroona Special School.
