About Community Principal

Community Principal is an annual program that encourages state schools to invite a local community, business or sports 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.

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 and 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 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 look into the world beyond school.
