Our Emblem

The word Yakamia is from the Menang Noongar People and means ‘home of the long neck turtle’.

The school emblem consists of concentric circles which represent the watercourse of Yakamia Creek which flows past our school and is a unique feature of our school community. In the centre of the circles are the profiles of two children, symbolising we are a student-centred school and our students are at the forefront of everything we do.

It is full of pride and good sportsmanship whether we win or not.
Peace is shown between our classmates and elders.
We care for our school and respect the people within it.
We love our school and we love our family.
Remember our motto, “Earn Honour”
