Leadership Day

Leadership Day

Wednesday 6th of September, 2017

The Heath, Education, Learners, Parents (H.E.L.P.) Association supports the biannual Ronald McDonald House Charities H.E.L.P. Conference. As part of the H.E.L.P. Association’s ongoing commitment to hospital school/institute leadership we would like to invite H.E.L.P. Conference delegates to attend a Hospital School Leadership Day at Sydney Children’s Hospital on the 6th of September, at no additional cost. The day will consist of presentations from educational leaders across Australia and provide opportunities for networking.

Please contact the Conference Secretariat if you would like to attend.

The Leadership Day will be held at The Bright Alliance, Tutorial Room A, Prince of Wales Hospital (High Street and Avoca Street, Randwick 2031).
