The Principals’ Roundtable is the most effective, ongoing professional development that I am currently involved in. The opportunity to share ideas, to learn and to feel supported by colleagues who are working through the same challenges that you have is a rare and invaluable asset.

Trevor Norman

Principal – Cooloola Christian College

Roundtable has impacted upon not only the culture and climate of the schools of those of us who participate in the process, but also has played an outstanding role in the support of the principals involved in the roundtable. This is achieved through the sharing of successes, challenges and ideas, through challenging one another’s thinking, and by being honest and vulnerable about things that impact upon us in our schools. Importantly, it is a place where all those involved have developed a sense of identity, communicate effectively with one another, and as a group are men and women of integrity, compassion and humility.

I have found the Principals’ Roundtable to be a valuable resource as I develop my professional and personal practice in the role of principal. The exchange of experiences and ideas in a high-trust environment allows you to delve deeper into some of the incredible challenges we face as principals. I highly recommend membership.
