The NSW Special Education Principals' and Leaders' Association (SEPLA) are excited to invite you to attend SEPLA-CON 2022 to be held at the ICC Sydney on Monday, 18th and Tuesday, 19th July.  After two years of virtual events, we are looking forward to reconnecting with everyone, face-to-face.

Our theme for SEPLA-CON 2022 is: 'Leading, Living and Learning' 

We believe this year’s theme reflects the challenges we have faced and will not only provide an opportunity to build on existing knowledge and practice, but look at the human side of what we do and the realities of our profession.


How and what are we leading in our schools and communities? How has leading changed over the last two years and what are the implications for leadership going forward? How are we adapting our leadership to new challenges and emerging trends? How are we building the leadership capacity within our schools and school communities? We want to hear from the leaders and those leading in our school communities. 


How are we learning to support or create programs for our collective wellbeing, staff, and students? How are we creating environments for students and staff that enable mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing? We want to hear from those who are developing, implementing, or have had success with programs that support us within and outside of our daily work. What internal or external supports have worked to support collective school wellbeing and practices?


What initiatives, resources or practices are we implementing to support student learning, growth and meaningful assessment for students with disability or other learning complexities. How are we adapting environments for students that enable success? What new and innovative ways is technology increasing both the engagement and positive social and educational outcomes for our students. We want to get a broad range of how schools are adjusting to our ever changing social and school environments with regard to student learning.
