Welcome to Victorian Association Catholic Primary School Principals Inc

Impact the future -Leading today’s learners for tomorrow

“The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, acting, living! It is possible to live differently in this world.” (Pope Francis)

“The future is not something that happens to us!
It is the world we weave from the confluence of past gifts, present decisions and future-directed action” (Foresight International)

Many experts believe that the next ten years will see the equivalent of more than a 100 years of change. In the McKinsey Report we are told that the most fundamentally important issue of our time will be our need to re-skill and to provide the safety net and the incentives to do lifelong learning. This is going to be critical for society and it’s happening a lot faster than we’re prepared to deal with it. If educational institutions, businesses and societies don’t get it right, we’re going to have a massive societal disruption. We will have a world with increasing inequality. It is suggested that up to 30% of current work will be displaced by automation by 2030, affecting up to 3.2 million workers in Australia alone.

  • The Foundation students starting in your schools this year will enter the workforce in 2031. How are you preparing them for this world?
  • What should we be implementing in the schools that we are leading today?
  • What will the schools and workplaces of tomorrow look like?
  • How will the extreme technological changes occurring in the world impact these?
  • What role will faith based beliefs play in this new world order?
  • What are the key skills and attributes we must be teaching our current primary aged students to ensure they are successful, contributing members of the new world society?

Make sure you register for the 2019 VACPSP conference where outstanding world class futurists, business people and innovators will help you make sense of the direction schools must be taking/

So, put the date in your diary (26-29th March 2019) for you and your leadership teams, to come and experience a Conference designed specifically by your colleagues. We are sure that the beautiful coastal town of Lorne and the magnificent Mantra Resort will be a superb setting for our adventure.

We look forward to seeing you there
