Leadership for Future Focused Schools

What makes a great principal?

The classroom teacher is the most visible person in a child’s life at school, but it is the principal who is responsible for providing a high-quality education for all students.

Great principals lead teaching and learning.
Great principals hire, develop and retain great teachers.
Great principals build a strong school community.
Great principals are lifelong learners, staying abreast of contemporary issues.

This Conference will cover a small but important component of some issues Principals in Schools need to be across on a day to day basis and brings together passionate Leaders willing to share their experience and ideas, showcasing programs that have worked for them and how they can for you too.

Friday 4 June - Saturday 5 June 2021
Wellbeing for Future Focused Schools

Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development, and are optimised by safe, supportive and respectful learning environments. Schools share this responsibility with the whole community.

Not only do confident and resilient children with a capacity for emotional intelligence perform better academically, these skills can also contribute to their ability to create strong social bonds and supportive communities, and to maintain healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.*

This Conference will cover the importance of wellbeing for both academic and social development together with areas of concern and strategies teachers can be equipped with to ensure positive outcomes for their students.
