Woombye State School makes a concerted effort to work closely with the local community. We have a strong P&C Association who have built many close ties with local businesses and community groups which work together to support the school.
Within our local Woombye business community are some extremely generous business owners and staff and many of them support our school in various ways:
· Displaying posters of our events,
· Selling tickets for our raffle fundraisers
· Donate items for our events/prizes
· Sharing our WSS P&C Facebook posts
· Change for Chappy Anne tins
· Giving the school a discount on purchases or free delivery etc
We are extremely appreciative of this support and are proud of our close relationship with our local community.
