Annual Professional Learning/Hauora Retreat


Each year the WBOPPA aims to support Professional Learning or a Hauora Event out of our immediate region.  In the past these have included a Melbourne field-based inquiry, attendance at NZPF Conference, attendance at ANZPF Conference and hauora experiences to Dunedin and Taupo.


This year we are hoping to support a Hauora focused experience outside of our region.  A team is currently working on an experience that will appeal to a broad group of attendees.  Further information will be shared by Week One Term 2.

The WBOPPA Executive also looks for opportunities throughout the year to provide Professional Learning for Principals at other times. Principals throughout the motu contact their local executive rep if they hear of anything that may be appropriate.
