WRPPA Meetings

The Wellington Regional Primary Principals' Association holds four meetings a year. Meetings usually start at around 9.00am with and include a guest speaker, morning tea and a general meeting. Occasionally WRPPA will organise other meetings with guest speakers. Information about these special events is sent via the principals’ email tree. With the pressures of being a principal it really is important to take time out from our schools, not only to listen to others, but also for others to listen to you.

New Zealand Principals’ Federation Conference 2021
2 - 4 August 2021
Location: Rotorua's Energy Events Centre

We have chosen the title Power, Passion, Pace; Pai tu Pai hinga! Whakamaua kia tina! for this conference. This signifies a need to renew, refresh and move ahead after an unusually fragmented year in 2020. After the drought of the last year, when we were unable to hold either a national or a Trans-Tasman conference, we know you will be eager to get together with colleagues again.

The NZPF Executive and Conference Committee are privileged to host you, and hope that the 2021 NZPF Conference will be memorable, both educationally and socially. We are currently working hard to deliver an inspiring programme, leaving you with a rejuvenated sense of leadership and purpose. This website will be updated regularly right up until conference with the information you will need to know to make the event enjoyable and worthwhile. We urge you to register early before the earlybird cut-off date of 12 May and look forward to seeing you in Rotorua!
