New Zealand Principals' Federation Conference 2017
Tuesday 19 September - Friday 22 September 2017
The theme of our national conference for 2017 - ‘Remarkably Different’ - is intended to signal that we are moving into a different way of working and planning what is the foremost professional development opportunity for NZ Principals. It is also a reference to the magnificent conference backdrop of the Remarkables in stunning Queenstown, Aotearoa, NZ.
NZPF has taken the conference back ‘in house’ so that the Executive can link the programme and the themes more closely to the organisation’s strategic aims and objectives and provide more continuity from year to year. Any future surpluses from conference will be channelled back into more professional development and support for principals right across NZ.
For 2017, the conference links to the NZPF work strand of
leadership and Principal hauora
and the NZPF kawa which incorporates
manaakitanga, pono, ako and awhinatanga.
The stunning location will enable us to provide an uplifting experience for you that incorporates both inspiring learning and fun. We hope you will leave feeling refreshed and energized after three days of learning and networking with colleagues.
Full details of the conference programme, speakers, accommodation options and registration are available on the dedicated conference website at www.nzpfconference.com
Updates will be posted regularly on this page with links to take you to the website as planning progresses. We look forward to seeing you in Queenstown!

Ka puna hauaitu, ka puna karikari, ka puna waimarie
The icy cold waters, the deep waters, the bountiful waters
A metaphor for the ‘depths’ and at times ‘cold and difficult’ work principals do.
However, bountiful and different opportunities are always present.
