Parafield Gardens High School uses a Learning Communities model. This means that instead of a Year Level Coordinator, students are assigned to one of four Learning Communities. Students are placed in Communities based on their Home group and stay in those communities for the remainder of their schooling. The benefits of this model include:
Each Learning Community consists of a Learning Community Manager, Youth Worker and Wellbeing who follow students through their learning journeys. The communities take part in challenges against one another including sport and engineering.
