About Community Principal

Community Principal is an annual program that encourages state schools to invite a local business, sport or community leader to job-shadow the principal for a day, or even a few hours.

The first Community Principal program took place in 2017 to help celebrate and showcase Queensland's exceptional state schools to a wider audience, and to shine a leadership spotlight on our principals as the genuine role models that they are.

Read more about some of our 2017 Community Principals in action.

What's involved?

The Community Principal can meet with students, staff and parents, participate in a special assembly, visit classrooms, undertake tuckshop shifts and playground duties, for a first-hand glimpse to the challenges and highlights.

The objective of Community Principal is to demonstrate some of the highlight the exceptional work of principals and staff to a respected member of the community, forge and strengthen school-community partnerships, and demonstrate the exciting programs that each school delivers.

Community Principal also gives the participants a far greater insight and appreciation into what is involved in running a school, and allows students and staff the chance to interact with role models and gain insight into the world beyond school.

Community Principals should be positive role-models within the local community, and not necessarily people with a high profile.
