Camp Australia's Industry Alliances

At Camp Australia, we like to get involved with schools at a local level. But our support for school communities, Principals and auxiliary associations doesn't stop there. In addition to involvement at conferences, network meetings, parent committees and other professional development activities, we partner with industry bodies that provide ongoing development for Principals.

The organisations we partner with include:


National Partnerships

Dennis Yarrington President APPA

Professionally, APPA works with Camp Australia to build the capacity of primary school principals as they lead their school communities. We both recognise that when a principal is informed in a way that enables the school to meet the needs of the community then the outcome is having children best placed to meet their potential, and a school positioned to provide the very best environment. In looking at APPA’s partnership with Camp Australia, there is no doubt that this is based on collaborating in a way that makes a difference to the work of school principals

Gabrielle Leigh AGPPA

Camp Australia works closely with individual school communities. The Australian Government Primary Principals Association endorses this vision and practice and seeks to partner with the organisation. Camp Australia works collaboratively with Principals, teachers and parent communities for the benefit of the school community as a whole. Camp Australia programing encourages healthy diversity in Australian school communities in a range of ways. It develops unique programs that are reflective of and responsive to the individual school community.
