2021 Melbourne Conference

2021 APPA NZPF Trans-Tasman Conference Update

It is with great disappointment that the Australian Primary Principals Association and the New Zealand Principals Federation advise you of the cancellation of the Trans-Tasman Conference, scheduled in Melbourne from October 18 – 21, 2021.

As you would understand, the health circumstances have ultimately prevailed and the conference simply cannot proceed in the current environment.

Our thanks to so many for your support of this event. You have provided clear evidence of the appetite for in-person professional learning and networking across the two nations. Your hard- working committee, convened by Gabrielle Leigh and with the support of The Conference Manager, has persevered on your behalf since late 2018. We most sincerely thank them.

We also extend our thanks to the speakers and exhibitors who have also persevered over such a long period of time. Their support has been truly outstanding.

Information regarding refunds will be sent directly to those delegates and sponsors who have made payment. Please keep an eye on your email in-box for those details.

We wish you all the very best for any up-coming scheduled events and for your daily work in leading school communities in Australia or New Zealand – particularly in such challenging times.

Yours sincerely,
Malcolm Elliott (APPA) and Perry Rush (NZPF)
