Parents and Citizens Association



The P&C Association is a vital link between the school and the home. The P&C represents the interests of Woodridge State School students, parents, staff, alumni and interested community members.

The committee has a close working relationship with the Principal and staff and our involvement ensures that the school reflects the needs of our school community. It is vital that we attract new members to bring in fresh ideas to enable a continuous improvement in what we offer to the school. We invite you to join our association, have your say and help us provide the very best educational experience for our children.

Meetings are held every third Monday of the month at 6.30 pm in the school Library. Membership of the P&C Association is open to all parents/caregivers and other interested members of the community.

The Annual General Meeting is held in February each year where all executive positions are open for election.

Our mission

Always Engaging, Improving Outcomes for You. AEIO4U
