At Woodridge State High School, we
acknowledge that parents, carers and families are the first and most important
influence in a child’s life, instilling the attitudes and values that will
support young people to engage in their education and contribute to broader
local and global communities. The purpose of a school is to help the family
educate the child.
Community partnerships can take
many forms to support children’s learning and development
Parents, carers and interested
community stakeholders are encouraged to take part in the running of the school
through several channels to support student achievement and school improvement:
Attending P&C meetings.
Involvement in school activities and functions.
Becoming involved in various sub-committees that are formed from time to time.
Completing and returning surveys that are distributed from time to time as part of our school review process.
Industry and university partners.
Woodridge State High School also
has strong links with universities, registered training organisations, TAFE and
other mentoring identities to enhance student learning, promote well-being and
maximise positive personal pathways for students.
more about the school’s community links, read the Change Makers magazine. The
Change Makers magazine is a collaborative media project led by the students at
Woodridge State High School and supported by students from the School of
Journalism and Communication at the University of Queensland. The project’s aim is
to build greater connections and cross-cultural understanding between the
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Pacifika, Australian and newly-arrived
refugee communities in Logan City.
