Event: The Inaugural CaSPA / NZ Catholic Principals' initiative

Date: 8- 11July, 2017

Location: Crowne Plaza Hotel Queenstown (NZ)

Cost: We aim to keep costs of travel [from east coast Australia], accommodation and registration to around $1000 - this is the cost of just registration for many other conferences. The CaSPA Board will consider requests for assistance from principals who may find the costs of this event a difficulty for their school communities.

Nature of Conference: A forum of shared and best practice with workshops lead by principals from the two countries. We have already had a number of colleagues offering to lead sessions on topics such as:

  • Addressing the needs of diverse learners
  • Building capacity of leaders beyond our leadership team.
  • Catholic Social Teachings in the Curriculum.
  • Charismatic based Grade Cert(RE) Pedagogy Units
  • Leading at the edge : What I have learnt from leading arguably Aus/ NZ most challenging school : OLSH Wadeye a large remote indigenous school in one of Australia's most troubled communities
  • Leading Strategically - Building an Innovative and Enterprising Culture
  • Learnings from Toronto 2016
  • Mentoring of Beginning and Early Career Teachers
  • Professional Learning Community
  • Staff Performance Review and Appriasial processes
  • The Future is Now - leadership journey working with disengaged youth
  • Combining Sustainability and Hospitality Services - from Garden to Plate and Back

Who Can Attend: Principals and members of Senior Leadership Teams - Partners Welcome!

What do we need from you: We need to give the NZ organising committee an idea of numbers from Australia by mid November this year. We know there is a good deal of interest among Australian Principals in this history making event. While some have emailed their details , we do need those who have not added their names [no money required at this stage] to register their interest by the end of October 2016.
