PA Conference

The next PA Conference will be held in Queenstown from 14-15 June 2018.  Our Programme covers areas of business for our PA's, such as workshops around communication styles, accounts and recruitment.

Our goal is to give Principals' PA's an opportunity to network with those in their chosen field, and come back to school refreshed, energized and in possession of some new tips and tricks to use.

We are honored to have the following Keynote Speakers & Workshops confirmed to attend (click on their names for further information):
