About Watson Road State School
Watson Road State School has a positive culture and strong relationship with the community. The school is a welcoming and accepting community of learners. The responsibility of this cultures lies with the actions and voice of the students, teaching and non-teaching team, parents/carers and community who come to our school.

Community hubs are based in schools and collaborate with a support agency to engage with culturally diverse, disadvantaged communities across Australia. Every hub is different, but works towards a common goal of building social cohesion in Australian communities through engaging culturally isolated families, building local connections and delivering formal and informal skills training. Hubs focus on supporting families to connect to opportunities in the early year space, aiming to improve child development and school readiness as well as enhancing settlement outcomes. Hubs focus on partnerships that encourage existing services to deliver their projects at the hubs. Programming is tailored to each individual hub after consulting with families and with the support of the national network.
