Professional Development

ASB/WRPPA Cluster Grants 2018

Groups of principals whose schools are members of Wellington Regional Primary Principals’ Association are invited to apply for the Schools Cluster Initiative Grant.

Grants are available for up to a maximum total value of $5,000.

Successful Grant Applications will:

  • Support the professional development and growth of principals in the cluster

  • Have potential benefit to the work of other WRPPA members

  • Be prepared to share a summary of their initiative upon completion at a WRPPA meeting

Other notes:

  • Grants will not be allocated to the same cluster within a 3 year period

  • All primary and intermediate schools participating in the initiative must have paid their annual WRPPA subs prior to an application being made

  • Where there are more applications than grants available, the WRPPA Exec will use the above criteria and also prioritise the allocation based on the following considerations:

    • Innovation of the project (different from others)

    • Level of benefit to the wider WRPPA group

    • Allocation of previous grants

    • Whether or not the cluster has access to funds from elsewhere

Applications close on Friday 27 April 2018. The grant will be presented at the Term 2 WRPPA meeting on 16 May 2018. Successful applicants will be required to briefly report back about their grant use at the Term 2 meeting in 2019.

Applications are to be made on the application form that can be found here.
