The school was officially opened on the 9th October 1957.

Mr P. Bartels was appointed the temporary head teacher with a staff of five teachers and 214 students enrolled.


The first permanent head teacher Mr Kenneth Birt was appointed in 1957.

The school closed in 2009 and all buildings have since been demolished.


After strong lobbing by the local community for more parks in the area the site is now the Sunvale Community Park.
