Photographs supplied by John Huth

The plaque commemorates the 125th year of service to the community by the Killarney State School from 1874 to 1999.

The first buildings for Killarney State School were completed 16 July 1874 after many years of planning.  However it was not until the end of July that the first Head Teacher, Henry Martyn Gwyther, was officially appointed. The first official roll call did not occur until 17 August 1874 with on average 29 students attending throughout the year.
