APPA – a unique and outstanding association of primary school leaders.
The Australian Primary Principals Association was established in 1974 by some visionary educators.
This association brings together government, Catholic and independent primary school leaders who work with the highest levels of collegiality in the best interests of Australian primary education.
APPA represents over 7,600 primary principals and school leaders across Australia; 200,000 primary teachers; and 2.2 million primary students; all working and learning in primary schools from 24 jurisdictions across all three education sectors (government, Catholic and independent).
APPA enjoys very positive relationships with the Minister and the Commonwealth Department of Education, key national education stakeholders, and has a close connection with colleagues in the New Zealand Principals Federation (NZPF), “across the ditch”.
