Houses were first built on Koolan Island in 1961 to house iron ore workers. Shortly afterwards BHP made a house available for schooling. The Education Department then agreed to build a school and this was officially opened on 15 March 1962. The Koolan Island Primary School closed at the end of December 1992 following the cessation of iron ore production on the island.
