The 2018 CaSPA Conference will be coordinated by CASPAQ.

Theme - “Tropical and Topical – Leading in Diverse Times”
Date - July 15 – 17, 2018 
Conference Venue - Cairns Conference Centre.

A wonderful range of speakers and workshop presenters will challenge and inspire leaders in Catholic education as they unpack some of the more topical issues of the day – relationships with indigenous people and cultures, challenges of the future, equality of access to education and others.  A stellar group of speakers including Kristina Keneally, Father Frank Brennan and Nick Wyman will make leaders think critically about what we do in Catholic education and how we do it.  

Delegates will leave Cairns with practical insights on performing their challenging but rewarding roles better. 

This year, we are very pleased to welcome to our Conference our Primary School colleagues (QCPPA – Queensland Catholic Primary Principals Association) and other leaders within our schools – many of our potential school Principals.
