Our Primary Purpose -Leading Learning

Welcome to the 2012 joint Australian Primary Principals Association (APPA) and New Zealand Principals Federation (NZPF) Trans-Tasman Conference website. As Chair of the organising team we are delighted to be hosting the Trans-Tasman Conference in Melbourne running form the 18– 21 September 2012.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn and celebrate primary education together. The focus is 'Our Primary Purpose – Leading Learning'. The APPA and the NZPF are working cohesively together to bring you an excellent combination of professional learning. The Trans-Tasman executive team consists of a group of dedicated New Zealand Principals and Australian Government, Catholic and Independent school principals who wish to further the cause of Primary Education across the Tasman and give clear representation across sectors and nations.
We do invite you to join with us to hear inspirational speakers coming from highly performing countries around the world – Finland, USA, Singapore, China and Australia. The social functions will be memorable – starting off at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This is an opportunity to network with colleagues from around Australia, across sectors and across the Tasman.
The Conference is being held at our newest and most impressive venue in the centre of the city – The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
See you at the 2012 Trans Tasman Conference in Melbourne

Chair of Trans Tasman Executive Team
