Principalmeet 2019 is the perfect opportunity to maximise the value of your time spent at conference. It is an opportunity to listen to principals share good practice, practical ideas and personal insights into primary education and leadership. Each speaker will have approximately 5 minutes to speak on their given topic so participants will leave with several examples of good practice. It is informal but organised. You can simply relax and listen or present.
