President’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Catholic Primary Principals Association (CPPA) in Western Australia.

The CPPA the professional association for senior leaders of catholic schools with primary aged students in Western Australia. Our aim is to enhance the work of principals and school leaders by supporting strategies for wellbeing and leadership development, and advocacy for the profession.

Active participation in the association is a hallmark of its success. I encourage each member to prioritise opportunities for collaboration and experience collegiality. Opportunities exist at the local, regional, state executive and national levels to extend and receive pastoral support, attend development opportunities and social events and become a member of the CPPA pillars or executive team. As a member of the CPPA, you are also part of the national education conversation and affiliated with the Australian Catholic Primary Principals Association (ACPPA) and the Australian Primary Principals Association (APPA).

We recognise the dedication you have to your own school community and the support you provide for your colleagues. Your contributions create vibrant communities of faith and foster the potential of all those you work with to ensure a brighter future for all students in our care.

Please take a moment to explore our website and discover the resources we offer to support you in your school leadership, including connecting you with our corporate sponsors, and we encourage you to provide feedback to improve and include new information and features.

God Bless

Andrew Colley

2024 CPPA President
