Principals Day 2017

Principals' Day 2017


Principals’ Day, initiated and supported by the Victorian Principals Association (VPA) for over 16 years, is an opportunity to recognise the valuable work performed by the Principal Class in Victorian Government Schools.

The leadership of Principals and Assistant Principals is essential to making our Victorian schools vibrant and stimulating places of learning. This year, Principals' Day will be held on Friday 4th August and we encourage school communities to show their support by acknowledging and celebrating the tireless contributions of their Principal Class Members.

How Can You Get Involved? - Principal Class
Each year the VPA hosts a number of Principals' Day collegiate events across the state - a chance to get together with colleagues in a relaxed social setting and celebrate each other's achievements. All Principals and Assistant Principals are welcome. For the nearest event to you, check out our Principals' Day event list below. More regions to follow.

How Can You Get Involved? - School Community

  2. Presenting the Principal and Assistant Principal with a token of appreciation, such as a handwritten card or letter, small gift or flowers
  3. Writing a letter of acknowledgement in the school newsletter
