The Government Schools Principals Conference is on Monday 5 June 2023. We are excited to bring you a full day of inspiring presentations, stimulating workshops, networking opportunities, and a special conference dinner. 

This is an excellent opportunity for Victorian government school principals to come together, hear from renowned educators and leading practitioners, and discover new ways of thinking about leadership excellence. 

We know how important it is to find opportunities to connect and learn from one another in person, however, we also understand how challenging it might be to step away from your school during this time. We have listened to your feedback and have turned the conference into a one-day event. 

Through the theme of leading people, this year’s conference will explore key ideas around: 

  • leading coherence 

  • leading outcomes 

  • leading self. 

This year, there will be no fee for principals attending. To help cover costs with attendance, further financial support will also be available. See FAQs for more information. 

As was the case in 2022, in-person participation will be limited to principals (including acting principals and campus principals). Plenary sessions will be streamed. No registration is required for streamed sessions, and there is no limitation on participation in the streamed sessions.
