Hermit Park State School opened in 1924. With a view to preserving our proud heritage, the well maintained classrooms are traditional wooden buildings with high ceilings and casement windows. In response to the changing learning environment, all classrooms and learning spaces throughout the school are now fully equipped with electronic whiteboards as well as fridges and air-conditioning. 

In 2010 our new library was recognised as an Education Queensland Showcase building for incorporating sustainable building techniques and traditional 'heritage-style' architecture with modern open floor plans. Extensive ITC facilities integrated in the space include a computer room with 30 networked terminals and a blue room for movie-making by senior students. 

Our fully enclosed, modern hall is used for a variety of activities including weekly school assemblies, band rehearsals, sports activities and community events such as the Easter Bonnet Parade.

Hermit Park is one of the few remaining schools with a dedicated, physically separated junior campus (Prep-Year 1). This enables us to tailor the physical environment to suit our youngest students with height-appropriate playgrounds, dedicated space for exploratory play and large classrooms for the varied early years curriculum requirements. 

On our main campus (Years 2-7), a combination of sustainability projects, means our large grass oval, with aborist managed 130 year old native trees, remains a green haven for outdoor play all year round. Students can also relax and play in covered areas and the handball, basketball  and tennis courts during breaks. 

Scattered throughout the school grounds is a wide range of facilities that enable us to fulfil our commitment to environmental sustainability. These include a worm farm, compost heap, solar water heating, water harvesting system, water sill filtration system, windmill, rainforest, arid garden, fruit and vegetable patch, native bush food garden, banana plantation, barramundi tank, aquaponics, chickens, native bees, frog pond and butterfly house.
