Zillmere Water Hole’s State School opened on 22 January 1877. At the time the school consisted of sixty-six students with James Spiers as the first Principal. However, by the 7th February 1877, enrolment had grown to one hundred and fourteen students. On the 8 March 1888 the institution became Zillmere State School. In 1914 the school was temporarily moved to the School of Arts in order to allow the rebuilding/repairing of old buildings.
