Our Schools Have Something to Celebrate.

It’s State Education Week 2018 this week and State schools across Queensland are celebrating.

This year’s theme is ‘Celebrating our Community’ and schools are invited to take up the challenge to showcase their unique qualities and join with their local communities to reflect on their achievements and in turn, for the whole community to acknowledge the great work being done in our schools.

Education Minister Grace Grace says the annual week (21-27 October) is an important celebration of education and a chance for schools to further strengthen relationships with the wider community.

“Successful education and supporting bright futures for our young people is a community effort.”

“The week will culminate in World Teachers’ Day on Friday 26 October – a chance to thank the more than 50,000 teachers who inspire our students every day, harness the talent within our state schools and showcase what is unique about each of our communities.”

The 2018 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools will also takes place on Friday.
