Leading for Wellbeing
Tasmanian Principals Conference17 - 19 March 2021

Wrest Point | Hobart | Tasmania

Dear colleagues,

Planning is continuing for our deferred 2020 Tasmanian Principals Conference, which will now be held 17-19 March 2021.

I am delighted that our speaker line-up remains the same, as all of our presenters have agreed to present on the re-scheduled dates.  The program remains focussed on your wellbeing – a very timely focus indeed.

A number of factors that influence our planning remain unknown, as we do not know with full confidence, what the world will be like in March 2021.  This means that our planning needs to be flexible and responsive to this uncertainty.  To do this, two changes have been made to the 2021 Conference:

  1. The venue will now be Wrest Point, Hobart, rather than Country Club, Launceston, as originally planned; the facilities at Wrest Point allow us to better meet the density rules as they currently stand.
  2. The Conference will be presented in a hybrid format – delegates will have the option of attending face-to-face or virtually; this enables you to attend the Conference in a way that best suits your needs.

I am very much looking forward to sharing this exciting learning and networking opportunity with you.  If you have not yet had the chance to do so, I encourage you to view the program online and register for the Conference.
