On 12 February 1922 the Yallourn State School No 4085 was opened with 13 pupils. The first school building was a weatherboard cottage at No 4 Hillside. By 1923, enrolment had reached 139 pupils; they came from the Camps and outlying areas, so a move to new and bigger buildings in Outlook Road was needed. This would become the Secondary School when a new Primary school was opened in 1932, on the corner of Fairfield Avenue and Banksia Crescent.
