The school, which opened in 1885, is Yeppoon's first and oldest school and was moved to its present location in 1957. The school is situated close to the heart of the Yeppoon business centre and services the areas of Pacific Heights, Barlows Hill, Meikleville Hill and the Esplanade, the Town Heart, the Club Estate, the Golf Links Estate, Barmaryee, Hidden Valley, Bondoola, Mulara, Inverness, Adelaide Park, Woodbury, Cooberrie, Bungundarra, Maryvale, Lake Mary and Seaview Hill. The school is situated in the Rockhampton Regional Shire and is part of the Fitzroy-Central West Queensland Education Region.

The school campus is situated in 10.9 hectares of school grounds, which feature an environmental studies area, two sporting ovals and basketball court. The hilly terrain and building complexity combine to provide a unique and varied learning environment. The school has a 25 metre swimming pool, new multipurpose hall, new resource centre and generous teaching spaces which allow classes to spread out.  

The dedicated staff of teachers, aides, administration, cleaners and groundsman coupled with the solid backing of parents and community and the enthusiasm and energy of the students work together to provide a positive and supportive educational setting.  

The school provides a range of quality learning experiences for students from Prep to Year 7 and aims to follow its traditions whilst encompassing the changes essential to preparing our students for the challenges of their future.
