Principals’ Day will be back again in 2024 - mark it in your calendars now - Friday August 2.
Principals' Day 2023
On Friday, August 4, educators and their communities across Victoria (and throughout Australia) marked the annual celebration of Principals' Day, an event that shines a well-deserved spotlight on the dedicated individuals steering the ship of education—school principals, assistant principals, and leading teachers.
Our principals and assistant principal teams are phenomenal, and work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure government schools are places of quality and inclusion, so it was truly fantastic to see how far Principals’ Day has spread. This year we were excited to see Principals’ Day promoted across a range of channels including the VPA regions, but also in other states around Australia.
We heard tales of scrumptious morning teas and before-school meetups at cafes, saw examples of handmade artworks, hand-delivered chocolates, and fresh floral bouquets. From special assemblies and awards ceremonies to creative art displays and heartfelt messages, each school community had their own way of showing thanks and appreciation.
The VPA would like to acknowledge everyone who supported or took part in the day—school leaders, teachers, students and parents, the Department of Education, and even the VPA’s wonderful business partners who went out of their way to share the celebration. A big thanks to you all.
We hope every school leader out there received the recognition they deserve and the day left you feeling seen and appreciated by your communities.
