Welcome to the Auckland Primary Principals’ Association – the APPA. We have been the collective voice for primary and intermediate school principals in the greater Auckland region – from Franklin to Hibiscus Coast – for nearly 100 years.

The APPA is a strong and viable professional organisation that has a history of service, advocacy and representation of principals’ interests in addressing the needs of primary and intermediate school education in New Zealand. In particular, being the largest local principals’ association in New Zealand, we are a strong lobby and support group that has influence at both the local and national levels.

Welcome to the 2017 APPA Conference, STAR TECH – The Learning Frontier

Who would have thought that in 1966 Captain James T. Kirks fazers set to stun would be today’s police tazers And when he flipped open his communication device, we would be using iPhones to run our lives. We are now just waiting for Scotty to beam us up or down! Yesterdays dreams, today’s lives.

Important Update on Speakers

Unfortunately John Shackleton has had to pull out of the conference. He is being replaced with John Peachy from The Think Farm. Below is information about his workshop at the Conference:

“Leadership Without Gravity”…taking leaders to extraordinary places
Old paradigms of leadership have held leaders grounded for far too long. New leadership thinking releases creativity, stimulates innovation and creates huge engagement. But more than that, they deliver the quality of leadership well-being outcomes we desperately desire and require. Through the four powerful horsemen of the leadership apocalypse, Leverage, Power, Influence and Legacy, this workshop will stimulate your thinking and free you to be the style of leader that colleagues simply can’t get enough of and education can’t survive without.
John Peachey from The Think Farm is dangerous. He is what has been described as a disruptor, a provocateur to the status quo. He will turn your world upside down… mess you up and help you put your world back together again better and stronger than before. He researches, writes and delivers on leadership and communication that drives innovation, engagement and collaboration. John asks the type of questions that make leaders feel uncomfortable enough and be vulnerable enough to break free into new paradigms of innovation, adventure and influence.
