'The VPA has significantly broadened my network of colleagues, depth of knowledge and appreciation of its ongoing advocacy for Principal Class.’
- Dale Power, Principal, Miners Rest Primary School

‘The VPA provides the opportunity to expand professional networks and increase awareness of current trends and developments in education. I would encourage all Principal Class Officers (and in particular Assistant Principals) to join the VPA as the effect of a collection of people is far greater than just one person.’
- Joanne Menzel, Assistant Principal, Kennington Primary School
