Our community

Park Ridge State School serves the needs of children who come from both semi-rural and urban areas. Many families live to the south of the school on acreage allotments. Whilst the vast majority of our students are Australian born, we have an increasing enrolment of students whose families  came from the Pacific Islands and South East Asia. Currently twenty-six students approximately 4.5% of the school population, are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.

Park Ridge State School enjoys strong partnerships with its community through the activities of the school and the P&C association. The school provides continued access to and use of facilities by community groups – Yoseikan karate academy, Garden City Samoan Assemblies of God Church, zumba dance classes, Ken Glass swimming, Park Ridge State High School, St Bernadines School, Oxley Christadelphian Ecclesia and weight reduction club of Park Ridge. Additionally there is continued involvement with local community businesses and organisations through:

  • Ongoing communication with local bus transport companies and child care providers
  • Support of our kids breakfast program
  • Continued support of P&C multi raffles and prizes
