from TPA President, Sally Milbourne

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to advise that work is continuing on our rescheduled Tasmanian Principals Conference, which will be held on March 17th – 19th next year at the Country Club Launceston.

We are delighted that all our presenters are able to be a part of our program next year. I extend my gratitude to Robyn Moore, Rob Edwards, Dan Haesler, Sarah Ralston, Kirsten Douglas and Kurt Fearnley for their support of our Association and our Conference. I am very much looking forward to learning with and from them next year.

The provisional program is available to view by clicking the ‘Program’ tab above, and as you will see, the sessions are perfect for us to consider how to ‘Lead for Wellbeing’ in order to support ourselves and those we work with.

We very much look forward to seeing you at our Conference next year. Early Bird Registrations will open early in term three. Keep an eye out – the Early Bird and Member discounts are great value.

Sally Milbourne
President | Tasmanian Principals Association
