Principal's Training and Networking Day

Principal's Training and Networking Day

This in person event is a professional development opportunity for West Australian Principals to meet, up skill and network as we hear from 3 leaders on;

How you can turn a school from acceptable to exceptional?

What is practically being done to future-proof the pipeline of teachers into Christian schools? And

What it means and looks like for us to be the body of Christ together in mission?

Whilst this meeting is primarily for Principals, we invite any school who's Principal is unable to attend send a delegate to represent their school.
