Mission and Aims

The mission of Principal for a Day is to increase and strengthen relationships, based on knowledge and understanding, between the private sector and education. Partnerships between key leaders in education, business and the wider community are especially important. There is ample evidence, from OECD in particular, on the strong relationship between education and employment, and social harmony and economic prosperity, at individual and societal levels.

Principal for a Day brings business and community leaders together with school leaders, with the aims of:

  • increasing understanding and awareness between schools, business and the wider community
  • promoting the great work that schools do
  • enabling participants to develop ongoing relationships, partnerships and programs for mutual benefit.


Business and community leaders and school principals are encouraged to register to participate in the 2017 program.
