Planning for State Education Week
Schools can start forward planning for State Education Week by establishing a planning team. Some questions to consider include:
- How will we involve our students in our planning?
- Who else will need to be involved in the event?
- Staff—teachers and non-teachers
- P&C or Council, community members, elders, parents and carers
- Business partners, local advocates, politicians
- Past students (alumni)
- Other schools or our cluster group
- What would we like to showcase during State Education Week?
- How will we celebrate?
- How will we involve and engage with our community?
- What communication channels will we use?
More information and resources to help prepare for State Education Week 2020 will be available soon.
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.
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.
