Newly Appointed Principals

The role of Principal as administrator, manager and leader is not only a position of great responsibility, but also one that is immensly challenging and rewarding.  At the time of your appointment, it is understandable to feel a little overwhelmed at the high volume of information and initiatives requiring your response. 

IPPN Member Supports and Services are designed to meet the spectrum of your professional needs in your role as school leader. IPPN has designed an array of innovative programmes promoting leadership, learning, advocacy, training and the sharing of best practice among principals.



Mailing list - this mailing list has been set up especially for all Newly Appointed Principals. On this mailing list you will be able to contribute to the debate, seek advice, pass on useful information and interact with your colleagues. Apart from some members of the IPPN Executive, who have agreed to facilitate this mailing list, the only contributors will be Newly Appointed Principals.
