Registration now open for the IB Schools Australasia Leadership Symposium 2019

June 06, 2019
Designed for School Leaders (Principals, Heads of School, IB Coordinators and others) this event will bring together the expertise of IB practitioners to help schools inform their practice in the Australasian context. Our 2019 event includes notable experts in the IB including Steven Wishart, Dr Marcia Behrenbruch, Darlene Fisher, Dr Jo Fahey, and Dr Amy McKernan. All sessions have been designed to be interactive and provide leadership teams with valuable insights to take back to their schools.

Networking and forming connections between schools is a key part of the day with times set for networking and learning from one another.
