About Community Principal
As part of our
State Education Week activities, you may like to invite a local community, business or sports leader to job-shadow the principal for a day, or even a few hours.
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.
