Deputy Principals Conference 2018

Our Education / Deputy Principals Conference 2018
Join with staff from EREA as the have a conversation with our various partners as they share their Words of Wisdom.

Deputy Principals from across our schools, Associates and New Zealand partners gathered in Brisbane in August 2018.

The theme of this year’s gathering was based on the motto “To Do and To Teach”, which honours the 150 years since the arrival of Br Ambrose Treacy.

When looking for inspiration for the theme of the conference – it was important to look within our EREA schools, Early Childhood Learning Centres and Flexible Learning Centres and outside, to trending research and other voices that are shaping the education agenda of our nation. Looking within our various EREA entities allows us to identify and celebrate our work done in mission and education by our teachers and leaders across the country. There is indeed much to celebrate and acknowledge. Looking outside can help us see our challenges in new ways and find unexpected solutions.

The best way to learn is by doing and sharing. This year’s conference brought together some world-renowned and national keynote speakers along with a variety of practitioners, entity visits, formation and panel sessions. These are the best places to soak up and experience a lot of information in a short amount of time. The value of networking with other like EREA travellers is not to be underestimated as we continue to develop and enhance the mission and educational agendas of our EREA entities.
