The Australian Primary Principals Association has 5 key priorities:

  • The status of the profession;
  • Principal and school leader health and wellbeing;
  • Sustained investment in primary education;
  • The curriculum; and
  • Assessment.

APPA believes that the pandemic period has reinforced the need for the profession to be meaningfully and closely involved in collaboration on policy formulation, assessment and implementation design.

APPA remains deeply concerned about the mental health of primary school aged children.

We welcome your ongoing support, engagement and collaboration in these endeavours.









2023 Australian Primary Principals Day was celebrated on Friday, 4 August.
