The Memorial Gates were constructed as a memorial to past students and teachers who had served in the First World War.

Designed by Evan Smith, the gates were officially opened on the 22 November 1924 by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Matthew Nathan. The memorial was provided largely from funds subscribed to by parents and those interested in the school.
