State Education Week, to be held on Monday 25 October to Friday 29 October 2021, is an annual event that showcases and celebrates Queensland state schools.
The department will release the 2021 theme later this year.
Community Principal Program
Through the Community Principal Program, schools can invite a local community, business or sports leader into school to job-shadow the school principal for a half or full day during State Education Week.
The guest Community Principal can meet with students, staff and parents, participate in a special assembly, visit classrooms, take part in tuckshop shifts, playground duties and more. They gain a greater insight and appreciation into what is involved in running a school and in turn, staff and students benefit through positive interactions with community role models to forge and strengthen schools–community partnerships.
The objective of the program is to highlight some of the exceptional work of principals and staff to a respected member of the community and demonstrate the exciting programs that each school delivers.
