As a Professional Association The NSW SPC has maintained committed actions advocating for the agreed NERA funding with the Federal government. The significance of Gonski for education across schools, jurisdictions, states and territories cannot be understated. A commitment by the Federal Coalition for the fifth and sixth year is vital for education in Australia.

Our NSW Government (Minister Piccoli and Premier Baird) has committed to the original agreement by the state. The event is another important step in advocating for the full Gonski funding reform. There will be speakers from the Public, Catholic and Independent education sectors.


2014 Academy Photography Fellowship


Awarded to June Hingston - Principal
(ex Callaghan College, Newcastle, NSW.)

The Academy Photography Fellowship provides funding to the amount of $4000 annually to be used for the purpose of educational research.

The aims of June's research are to:

  1. Examine the relationship between factors that affect principal leadership practice in the implementation of SBM policy reform.
  2. Explore the impact of the implementation of state SBM reform on the enactment of principal leadership.
  3. Investigate the effects of the implementation of school-based management reform on the workload and role of the principal, in terms of role overload, role conflict and role ambiguity.
  4. Improve school leadership practice through the development of research-informed professional development programs and instruments, and the development of a database of principal best practice (Innovation Projects).
  5. Contribute to the theory knowledge and practice on SBM, system reform, factors that influence principal leadership and the enactment of principal leadership.
  6. Inform policy on the effects of the implementation of SBM reforms on principal leadership practice.

Principals hold very significant positions in the education process and are essential for successful schooling. They are the main source of leadership in their schools and they are second only to classroom teachers as an influence on student learning (Hallinger & Heck, 1998; Harris, 2009; Leithwood, Day, Sammons, Harris, & Hopkins, 2006).

Parents of all students in NSW schools will be thrilled that the Premier Barry O’Farrell has led the Australian States by being the first leader to sign up the Gonski education funding reform package.

“This is a great day for students in NSW schools, an especially important day for those students who have been struggling with educational disadvantage through no fault of their own,” said Lila Mularczyk, the President of the New South Wales Secondary Principals’ Council (NSW SPC). “The funding that will flow as a result of this deal will change lives. School leaders and teachers will make sure of that. We will ensure that those students who were being left behind will receive targeted learning programs and support."
