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 and 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 Tuesday of the month at 5600 pm in the B Block. 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.
We offer Parents and Friends of our school access to positive experiences that lead to improved personal and educational outcomes for our students.
