Durong Provisional School no.1810 opened via Wooroolin / Proston in the South Burnett region in 1923. From 7 November 1927 the school became a State School. In 1970 the school had a change of name to Boondooma State School. The school saw declining enrolments from 22 pupils and one teacher in 1988 to 18 enrolments and a Principal/Teacher in 1999. The declining enrolments resulted in the closure of the school at the end of 1999.

Note: There was another school called Boondooma State School (no.1720) which opened in 1939 and closed on May 3 1968.
