Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to 2019 Tasmanian Principals Conference website. Here you will find information, which will be regularly updated, about our exciting 2019 Conference.

Our focus on principal health and wellbeing is an important and timely one.  The 8th Riley Report released in February, shows continuing concern about the health and wellbeing of principals around our nation. Our Conference invites you to learn, with your colleagues, from a range of well-regarded speakers in the area of health and wellbeing.  We hope that you will leave each of the sessions with knowledge and skills that you can use to support your own wellbeing.

I look forward to welcoming you to our Conference.

Kind regards,


Dr Sally Milbourne
