Primary Principals Association
Catholic Primary Principals leading the heart, mind and spirit of future Australia
ACPPA provides a valued and considered voice for Australian Catholic primary schools. It is a recognised and respected national association that represents Catholic primary Principals and Leaders from over 1220 primary schools and 150 combined primary/secondary schools from all of the states and territories of Australia. These schools educate over 400,000 primary students. ACPPA’s focus continues to be on advocacy and representative work undertaken by the National Executive and its members to influence the development and implementation of national education priorities and structures, and a financial model that supports the operations of Catholic primary schools.
To support this work our National Executive comprises two members from each state and territory association. They meet regularly throughout the year to develop and activate the association’s annual plan, which aligns with the core principles and strategies of ACPPA. Members are encouraged to share ideas and issues emanating from their respective state and territory associations, as a way to inform work in other states and to seek information from others about how those matters are managed in their states and territories. Collegial support is a key aspect of these interactions, as is the regular opportunity for members to participate in and share professional learning.
