PFD5 EditMember for Mulgrave Curtis Pitt will try his hand as Principal for a Day at White Rock State School on Friday 5 June.

Mr Pitt will ‘job shadow’ Principal John Baskerville to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the great things happening at the school.

“The Principal for a Day program is organised by the Department of Education and Training as part of State Education Week celebrations which run from 1–6 June,” Mr Pitt said.

“I am very much looking forward to my experience as Principal for a Day as it will be a wonderful opportunity to gain an insight into the daily operations of the school.

“During the day I will have the chance to interact with students, teachers and the wider school community.”

Education and Training Minister Geoff Wilson said business and community leaders from across Queensland will participate in the Principal for a Day program this week.

“Schools will receive visits from media, entertainment and sporting personalities, local mayors and Aboriginal elders,” Mr Wilson said.

“This will be the sixth year the program has been run in Queensland. It has also been run successfully in Victoria and is based on a similar program in the United States.

“This is just one of a range of activities held during State Education Week to honour and showcase the fantastic work being done in our state schools.”
