Professional Learning Day

The NSW Secondary Principals' Council is disappointed by the Murdoch Press in distracting public discourse regarding the focus of the film Gayby Baby. The film explores narratives around young people with same sex parents. The media attack facilitated ill-informed discussion in the public domain.
This highly acclaimed film shares the stories of children raised in same-sex families. Public education values embrace inclusion and diversity.
As educators we have a responsibility and pride in working with students to view the world through an understanding of diversity, respect, value and inclusivity. NSW schools accept and embrace the wider community in its entirety. We will progressively promote the acceptance of diversity within our school communities.
UBS offers a fully covered, week long Leadership program for young women in Year 11. The program is residential and participants stay at Women’s College at the University of Sydney. The New South Wales Secondary Principals’ Council has supported the program since its inception.
Aims of the Academy are to:
The students are introduced to a diverse group of contemporary women leaders and provide them with assistance to help them look beyond their experience. We hope to encourage leadership aspirations in young women and to provide some leadership skills development.
Public High School Principals receive application details for the Academy at the beginning of Term 1.
UBS Finance Academy
The annual UBS Finance Academy program has been created around the theme of finance with the objective of providing leadership in banking education with a particular focus on senior secondary school students. It introduces students to a wide range of career opportunities in banking.
UBS HSC Economics Day
