Waraburra is named after a clan of the Darumbal people, who lived south of the Fitzroy River around the present location of Gracemere and Kabra.

The name is taken from the WARA or wild guava historically found growing in the area. BURRA is the suffix meaning 'clan or people thus WARABURRA is translated to mean 'people of the wild guava'.

Our school emblem is so designed to represent the partnership involved in 'Learning for Life.'Waraburra State School logo

The four distinctive W's formed by the outside legs of the figures represent the four sections of our school community: students, teachers, parents and broader community. The linked hands are symbolic of the need for all sections to work harmoniously together to achieve our goals.

The central star formed by the figures represents the life given by the flowering guava plant.

This reference to the guava and the simplistic figures tie the school in with the origins of WARABURRA.

The Y formed by the legs of each figure indicates the hope we have in the future for our youth.
