The Australian Boarding Schools Association conducts a range of conferences for boarding staff from around Australia and many other countries. These are held at both national and state level.
Taking the Reins is a conference held each March to assist those taking on the Head or Assistant Head of Boarding role in a school. It is aimed not only at those new to the position, but those changing schools as well.
The ABSA National Conference, held in September/October of 'even' years is a four day event with keynote and workshop presentations for all areas of boarding staff, including Principals, Deputy Principals, Heads of Boarding, Heads of House, Nursing staff and general boarding staff.
The Leaders Symposium is held during 'odd' years in August and is a two day series of presentations and workshops for those leading boarding houses.
Each of the States holds regular State Symposiums - details will be listed below as they are planned.
