Our school

People have often been heard to comment, "Why Wartburg? Shouldn't the school be called Baffle Creek State School?"

As we delve back into our history, we discover that the school's founding parents chose the name Baffle Creek Sugar Mill State School.  They were instructed to come up with a more unique name then something that contained the words Baffle Creek.  At the time there were already another 2 schools in the district that had Baffle Creek in their name. These two schools have since closed. Wartburg was then suggested as it was the name of the sugar mill manager's house.

With a little foresight, the Department of School's should have realised that Wartburg was in an ideal location for longegivity, and that it would have been more prudent to get the other 2 schools to adjust their names instead.

Wartburg celebrated its centenary in 2013. It was established in 1913 by Prussian and German immigrants seeking a new and better life in Australia. In keeping with this beginning, today many people move to this area seeking a sea/tree change for themselves and their families.
