Memerambi Provisional School opened 16 October 1905 with the transfer of its first Head Teacher, Rosanna Cordwell, and the first registration of pupils, occurring on that date. On 1 January 1909 the school was proclaimed a State School. Memerambi State School was closed 31 December 2006. The school was *"mothballed" prior to closure, with the process being finalised 23 October 2007. Formal closure of the school took place by 7 Dec 2007.

*Mothballed is a term that applies to schools which are effectively closed but assets are maintained in case the school becomes viable again in the future.
